Catherine Crump, Assistant Clinical Professor of Law and Director of the Samuelson Law, Technology & Public Policy Clinic, and Andrew Ferguson, from the UDC David A. Clarke School of Law, will discuss issues related to surveillance and policing in the era of “big data.” In his talk, “The Rise of Big Data Policing,” Ferguson will focus on how cutting-edge technology is changing how the police do their jobs, and why it is more important than ever that citizens understand the far-reaching consequences of big data surveillance as a law enforcement tool. Catherine Crump will present “Surveillance Policy Making By Procurement,” focused on how federal funding for surveillance equipment disrupts local accountability mechanisms that typically regulate policing. The two scholars will engage in an interactive “fireside chat” discussion around these topics. RSVP here.
