TELL MAYOR JANEY: STOP SECRET SURVEILLANCE IN BOSTON

Act Now

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.

Use the form to send a message to your legislator.

As a Boston resident, I ask you to withdraw the Office of Emergency Management’s RFP for a regional surveillance camera network. We must wait until the City Council finishes its work to pass a surveillance ordinance that would establish democratic control over decisions like this.

Once again, I urge you to withdraw this RFP and let the council finish its work to pass a surveillance oversight ordinance.

Sincerely,
