Oppose Surveillance Cameras in San Francisco

On Wednesday, January 17, the San Francisco Police Commission will meet to vote on the installation of 8 additional public surveillance cameras in the city. If you live there, it's critical that you take action now to stop this ineffective, expensive, and privacy-invasive initiative.

Studies have shown that surveillance cameras do not reduce crime on city streets, and have enormous potential for abuse. Public monies are better spent on alternatives with proven track records in reducing crime.

What you can do: The most important thing you can do is attend the Police Commission meeting to tell them that you oppose the camera installation.

Where: San Francisco City Hall, Room 400

When: Wednesday, January 17th, 5:30pm

You can also voice your views to the Police Commission through ACLU of Northern California's action center.
