Some very good news today.
BPD Chief Cook listened to the privacy concerns of the majority of City Council, and the community comments at large and committed to not pursuing a Data Collection software program with BPD grant money. He deserves a thank you from the community because technically he didn't have to follow council's recommendation. A+ for privacy and thanks to those who stayed late to speak!
Thanks due as well to those Council members who concern themselves with privacy, potential abuse and corporate data collection.
