Brennan Center for Justice Conference:
Policing and Accountability in the Digital Age
Policing is being transformed by a breathtaking range of technologies, including location tracking, predictive policing, social media monitoring, encryption, and more. These tools are changing the landscape of what police can do, how quickly they can do it, and at what cost. For many departments, they offer a way to do their job more efficiently, particularly at a time of declining staffing levels and funding. At the same time, they offer an unprecedented window into citizens' private lives and frequently have a disproportionate impact on communities of color and marginalized groups. These new technologies may require police to adopt new rules and municipal governments to adopt new oversight mechanisms.
This symposium will bring together a range of stakeholders and experts for an in-depth discussion of these issues, including the intersection of constitutional law with law enforcement technology and minority communities, law enforcement's use of social media, public-private partnerships and their impact on policing and transparency, and possible models for legislative and judicial accountability.
