They’d like to know what the Springfield Police is doing with the data gathered from automatic license cameras. The American Civil Liberties Union is concerned about the potential misuses of the technology.
ACLU Attorney Karen Sheley, in a live on-air interview with 970 WMAY’s Greg Bishop, thinks that the information which Springfield police have gathered with the cameras could violate the rights of its citizens. The ACLU has requested a response on the issue from the Department and expects to hear back from City Police on Monday.
Cliff Buscher, Assistant Police Chief told WMAY News that the Springfield Squad Cars currently don’t have the cameras, but they’ve ordered some.
