ACLU pushes for legislation with City Council on BPD aerial surveillance program

BALTIMORE —The American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland is working with members of the Baltimore City Council on legislation to prevent the Police Department from deploying new surveillance programs without public discussion.

The effort isn't about crime-fighting, it's the lack of public disclosure and a transparent process to deploy it that's fueling the call for legislation.

The Baltimore Police Departments spy plane is temporarily grounded. The ACLU doesn't want it to take off again until the public is involved in the decision-making process.
