"Domain Awareness Center" would aggregate video feeds from all over #Oakland & analyze it w/ license scanners & facial recognition. #OakMtg

Speaker says access to #Oakland's DAC surveillance "won't be limited to first responders." Says most #OPD could access on laptops. #OakMtg
joshua daniels @HarryElephante
Contractor says all city cameras would be plugged into the DAC surveillance system and eventually be analyzed w/ facial recognition #OakMtg

.@DanKalb asking a couple of questions about privacy. When she heard cameras would use facial recognition, @LynetteGM said, "Great!" #OakMtg

When councilmembers pass a citywide surveillance system w/ facial recognition in 5 minutes w/ no debate, something is wrong #Oakland #OakMtg
joshua daniels @HarryElephante
.@greenkozi It sounds like anyone that works for/with OPD, OFD, etc. would have carte blanche access anytime. If so, that is very troubling.

My councilmember for #Oakland Dist 3 @LynetteGM asked no questions about implementing a citywide surveillance system w/ facial recog #OakMtg

Funds for #Oakland's "Domain Awareness Center" come from DHS & many named stakeholders are federal agencies: http://t.co/h1ySmokfLz #OakMtg

To be clear, the #Oakland DAC surveillance system passed the public safety cmte unanimously. Still needs to go before full council. #OakMtg
joshua daniels @HarryElephante
Those who act like mass surveillance / lack of personal privacy is no big deal just need to look at, I don't know, all of fucking history.
joshua daniels @HarryElephante
@greenkozi Speaker was bragging about how many people/devices this info would be available to/on, and to ppl other than first responders.
joshua daniels @HarryElephante
@greenkozi Not to mention it would all be available to DHS, NSA, FBI, CIA, FEMA, NOAA, USGS, etc., etc. The entire federal alphabet soup.

The #Oakland DAC surveillance contractor also said this would be the first such fusion center in NorCal & we "should be proud." #OakMtg
