Atlas of Surveillance Shines Light on Deployment of Cameras, Drones, and More

San Francisco—The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), in partnership with the Reynolds School of Journalism at the University of Nevada, Reno, today launched the largest-ever collection of searchable data on police use of surveillance technologies, created as a tool for the public to learn about facial recognition, drones, license plate readers, and other devices law enforcement agencies are acquiring to spy on our communities.

The Atlas of Surveillance database, containing several thousand data points on over 3,000 city and local police departments and sheriffs’ offices nationwide, allows citizens, journalists, and academics to review details about the technologies police are deploying, and provides a resource to check what devices and systems have been purchased locally.

Users can search for information by clicking on regions, towns, and cities, such as Minneapolis, Tampa, or Tucson, on a U.S. map. They can also easily perform text searches by typing the names of cities, counties, or states on a search page that displays text results. The Atlas also allows people to search by specific technologies, which can show how surveillance tools are spreading across the country.

Personally, I don’t just believe anything I read or hear, but instead, I do my own research until every stone is unturned. So, after thousands of hours of pain-staking research, I’ve managed to put the pieces of the puzzle together to form a complete picture. While I don’t profess to have all the answers, my intention is to share what I have discovered so far, and hopefully, inspire you to do your own research. While the beginning of this article outlines the Deep State’s plan for a New World Order (and it may sound like doom and gloom), there’s a higher purpose at play. In fact, if you stay with me to the end, not only will I show you the higher purpose, you’ll also see why humanity is destined to win this battle of good vs. evil, and you’ll also understand the important part you play!
