Surveillance Camera Mapping: Training

Sunday, September 26th New York City Bill of Rights Defense Campaign will launch the Surveillance Camera Project, a multifaceted effort to raise awareness about the extensive proliferation of powerful video surveillance technology in New York City, particularly since 9/11; encourage public discussion about the concerns raised by the growth in and lack of regulation of video surveillance in New York City; and advocate for legislation to create uniform standards for the use of surveillance cameras to protect privacy and First Amendment rights.

Learn more about how you can get involved with the Surveillance Camera Project and to receive a comprehensive training on spotting and mapping the thousands of video surveillance cameras found all over New York City.

Then, hit the streets with other volunteers for a more hands-on lesson and map the cameras you see in a yet-to-be-determined city neighborhood. Our goal is to develop a complete map of New York City, indicating the locations of all video surveillance cameras that look out into public spaces. We can't do it without your help, though!
