Seattle Speaks: Privacy Politics says
In an era of open government, data is critical to the promise of efficiency and transparency, but does releasing this data publicly harm or help society? Locally, City of Seattle leaders are pursuing a new privacy initiative that could impact everything from 9-1-1 calls to utility bills and police body-camera recordings. How are governments responding to crippling requests for vast volumes of digital data while trying to protect privacy rights? Panelists include Mike Wagers, COO of the Seattle Police Department; Seattle Privacy Coalition’s Tracy Ann Kosa, member of the city’s Privacy Advisory Committee; and City Councilmember Bruce Harrell. Make sure your voice is heard! Come to Town Hall or weigh in online, where you can take part in the polls and voice your opinion via social media and e-mail.
