Local Surveillance Oversight Ordinances White Paper

Theme: Public and Critical Infrastructure

Format: White Paper 

Student white paper compares and contrasts local surveillance technology ordinances from across the country

In the past few years, jurisdictions across the country have passed local surveillance technology ordinances. These ordinances are meant to bring more transparency and democratic control to local government use of surveillance technology. They passed in response to a push by civil rights and civil liberties groups concerned with the increasingly powerful surveillance capabilities of local law enforcement agencies. 

This student white paper is an effort to catalog and compare the local surveillance technology oversight ordinances that have passed so far based on the text of the ordinances themselves. 

It is authored by Berkeley Law students Ari Chivukula ’21 and Tyler Takemoto ’22, under the supervision of Catherine Crump and Juliana DeVries.

PeopleBudget.org: Miami Dade College students and Code for South Florida develop a participatory budgeting prototype

Theme: Public and Critical Infrastructure

Format: Dashboard

Miami Dade College (MDC), in partnership with Code for South Florida and the City of Miami, developed the Miami Budget project – an open source platform for citizen inclusion in the budget of the City of Miami. Students worked with faculty and industry professionals from Code for South Florida, Microsoft, and the City of Miami to create the participatory web application, which allows Miami residents to be informed contributors to their local budget.

The code repository, developed by students for this project, has nearly 100 branches. The fact that all branches are merged and closed shows evidence of student progress and completion of the project. Hundreds of separate commits were made by students, representing thousands of hours of work.
