Ordinance Banning Face Surveillance Technology in Boston

Docket #0683 bans government use of face surveillance technology in the City of Boston. Its amended form strengthens the language and protections to individuals by preventing surveillance at the request of the City, allowing the award of costs and reasonable attorney fees. THe ban is also expanded to private sector use of surveillance conducted with a government permit. The aim is to protect individuals from the unreliable and discriminatory tendencies of such technology.
