A request for proposals (RFP) published on the City of Boston’s website in April, and first reported by DigBoston, raises extremely alarming concerns about plans to extend a surveillance camera network throughout Massachusetts.
The RFP comes as the City Council in Boston is in the final stages of working to pass a surveillance oversight ordinance that would ensure the public, through their councilors, have control over decisions like this.
Tell Acting Mayor Janey to withdraw the RFP and wait until the City Council passes the surveillance oversight ordinance before embarking on costly, potentially dangerous expansions of government surveillance like this one.
