The Public Oversight of Surveillance Technology (POST) Act

In March 2017, the New York City Council introduced a bill to increase transparency and oversight of the NYPD’s use of sophisticated new surveillance technologies and information sharing networks. Dubbed the Public Oversight of Surveillance Technology (POST) Act, the legislation requires the NYPD to disclose basic information about the surveillance tools it uses and the safeguards in place to protect the privacy and civil liberties of New Yorkers.
