City Inside/Out: Safeguarding Seattle?
City Inside/Out: Safeguarding Seattle?
The age-old debate over public safety versus privacy rights is heating up as Seattle police install 30 cameras along the city`s shoreline. From Ballard to Alki Beach, residents are concerned that an innovative, federally-funded communications network includes maritime security cameras that could be used to spy on them. We show you what the cameras can see. We hear from Seattle Former Mayor Mike McGinn; City Councilmember Bruce Harrell, chair of the Council`s Public Safety, Civil Rights and Technology Committee; UW law professor Anita Ramasastry; and a West Seattle resident who is considering moving unless the cameras are removed. In our studio, we get perspective from Seattle Police Captain Chris Fowler and ACLU Deputy Director Jennifer Shaw. Who is watching you? And what are your rights when it comes to surveillance cameras?
