Local governments in at least four states have passed ordinances in 2018 or 2019 restricting the use of surveillance technology by government entities, according to the American Civil Liberties Union’s Community Control Over Police Surveillance (CCOPS) webpage and LexisNexis State Net’s local ordinance database. The National Conference of State Legislatures and State Net’s legislative tracking system also identified at least nine states that have considered measures restricting government use of surveillance technologies.
