Public Austin Forum on Police and Privacy March 30th

Posted on March 25, 2009 by



Proposed Police Programs Put Your Privacy at Stake

Austin’s police chief proposes a policy of mandatory blood withdrawals for drunk driving suspects who refuse a breathalyzer test.

Now the chief favors video surveillance across the city, new requirements for DNA samples for detainees, and police checkpoints, making everyone a suspect.

Is this the end of privacy as we know it?
