Public Safety Committee to discuss DHS grants, fusion centers, facial recognition

The Seattle City Council committee on Public Safety, Civil Rights and Technology will meet this Wednesday, December the 4th at 2:00 p.m. to discuss and possibly vote on several issues including the Seattle Police Department’s involvement in the Department of Homeland Security’s Urban Areas Security Initiative. This is a continuation of the involvement by our local law enforcement with DHS “fusion centers” that have been found by the US Congress to be ineffective and without proper oversight.

Please take a close look at how your tax money is being spent, especially given the revelations of massive warrantless surveillance by the federal government and by the military.
