This bill can keep your face out of a police database

Face-scanning police body cameras are a radical expansion of surveillance that could quickly become reality in California, but you can stop it. Body cameras should be focused on police misconduct, not on our faces. Call California Legislators and say “Do not support pervasive surveillance and vote YES on AB 1215.”

Body cameras should be used for transparency

Not surveillance.

Californians were promised that body cameras would be a technology that holds police accountable and guards communities against police misconduct. Implanting body cameras with face recognition software would do the exact opposite of what was promised to communities across California.

The Body Camera Accountability Act (AB 1215) is the solution to this the issue. The bill would prevent the use of face surveillance and other biometric surveillance tech with police body cameras or similar devices.
