Follow-up to persistent surveillance in Baltimore

This article summarizes a Police Foundation review of the secretive aerial surveillance project in Baltimore last summer. They found that the technology provided “hundreds of potential leads in an array of crimes and significantly advanced investigations of seven shootings and three homicides” as well as ten hit-and-run traffic accidents and many lesser incidents. The ACLU of Maryland severely criticized the report, though, for failing to recognize the impact of “giving the government the power of knowing where everyone goes every time they leave their house.”
