The Sacramento Press Club and The Center for Investigative Reporting presented

The State of Surveillance

With much of the world's attention focused on the NSA and the trove of leaks provided by Edward Snowden, a much quieter revolution is happening across the country. In California, law enforcement agencies are enthusiastically embracing a variety of tools to collect metadata on everyone they can. The tools – which range from automated license-plate readers to facial recognition to social media monitoring systems – greatly expand the data and databases officers have at their fingertips. Law enforcement agencies say many of the technologies are already making it easier to solve – and in some cases prevent – crimes. But privacy advocates argue that these expanded databases are becoming dragnets increasingly populated with information about law-abiding citizens.

Thanks to everyone who was able to join us at Beatnik Studios to watch The State of Surveillance, the short documentary produced by The Center for Investigative Reporting, and discuss what all of this means for you.

Panelists:
Jennifer Lynch, senior staff attorney, Electronic Frontier Foundation

Andrew Becker, The Center for Investigative Reporting

Moderator:
Robert Salladay, The Center for Investigative Reporting
