EPIC [1]
March 23, 2013

EPIC, joined by thirty organizations and more than a thousand individuals, has petitioned the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection to suspend the domestic drone surveillance program [2], pending the establishment of concrete privacy regulations.

The petition [3] states that “the use of drones for border surveillance presents substantial privacy and civil liberties concerns for millions of Americans across the country.”

The petition follows the revelation that the drones deployed by the federal agency are equipped with technology for signals interception and human identification.

For more information, see EPIC: Domestic Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and Drones [4].
