The Atlas of Surveillance is a research project organized by the Electronic Frontier Foundation in partnership with the University of Nevada, Reno’s Reynolds School of Journalism. By crowdsourcing small research tasks, we aim to inventory surveillance technology in use by local law enforcement agencies across the United States, starting with the communities along the U.S.-Mexico border.
