Stop ShotSpotter – Public Comment at City Public Safety Committee Meeting (Abolition WG)

November 18, 2021 @ 2:00 pm 4:00 pm

As part of the Neighbors Against Spying campaign, the Abolition Working Group are organizing community members to participate in public comment at the next Public Safety Committee meeting on Thursday, November 18 at 2 pm to ask questions of the City Council and HPD re: the ShotSpotter pilot program, a wasteful and ineffective surveillance technology that endangers Black and brown communities and increases interactions with high-alert policing. Let’s demand the city invest in safer communities by providing aid and services that prevent harm!

Visit https://houstondsa.org/abolition to view our Talking Points and Demands, and to register for Public Comment (deadline is Wednesday, November 17) via the City of Houston’s website.
