Senate Bill 2562 allows police across Illinois to use a new, powerful surveillance tool – drones – to monitor protests. In a time when thousands of people are demonstrating to speak out on public policy matters, this measure would subject those exercising their First Amendment right to video monitoring and facial recognition technology.
Senate Bill 2562 unfortunately guts ground-breaking legislation passed and signed into law just three years ago requiring a judicial warrant for the use of drones by police in Illinois.
