Thanks to everyone who filled out MuckRock’s FOIA request system to find out whether police are using facial recognition technology and how.

Eleven requests are up for Massachusetts, but that still leaves 340 cities and towns we can file FOIA requests in.

The process to send a request to your municipality or any other you are interested in is easy:

  1. Go to their project page
  2. Fill out the form at the bottom of the page
  3. Complete any steps they have to create an account

That’s it. It will email your request and send followup emails until you get the information you requested.  If you already have a MuckRock account, please login first before you go to their project page.

This is a nationwide effort, so if you live outside of Massachusetts you can still file for your own community or even any community in Massachusetts.

This effort is a very easy way to help the effort to stop facial recognition technology in Massachusetts.  Please take a few minutes to fill out the form and, if you want, drop us an email at info@masspirates.org telling us you submitted a FOIA request and in what community.
