In the past few years, police departments across the country have embraced police-worn body cameras as a response to community demands for increased accountability. But do body cameras, coupled with advances in facial recognition technology, actually reduce police brutality, or do they only increase the surveillance of already over-surveilled communities? If there’s no going back, what do sensible restrictions on body cameras and facial recognition look like?
Watch the live stream below at the time of the event.
Join us for a conversation between TCF Senior Fellow Barton Gellman, senior counsel at the Constitution Project and facial recognition expert Jake Laperruque, and editor of The New Inquiry magazine Ava Kofman, who has reported extensively on body cameras and new surveillance technologies for The Intercept.
The discussion will be followed by a wine and cheese reception with the panelists.
