Petition to Seattle City Council Members
Tell the Seattle city council to ban the use of facial recognition in law enforcement
I am an active citizen in Seattle and since big technology companies have started to develop facial recognition, police departments and law enforcement agencies have been looking into using facial recognition to help them to catch suspects. Since San Fransisco banned facial recognition due to privacy concerns, a lot of other cities and states have considered banning them, but not many other cities have taken action. I am vehemently against the use of facial recognition for use by police departments because it is prone to error and increases unchecked surveillance by law enforcement agencies.
