ACLU Colorado opposes AI review of Aurora PD body camera video, citing privacy and surveillance concerns

Denver7: The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Colorado said it is opposed to artificial intelligence (AI) analysis of Aurora Police Department’s body camera video.

Interim Police Chief Art Acevedo announced his intention to employ the technology earlier this month, and the Aurora City Council approved a $250,000 contract with the company, Truleo, during its Monday meeting.

Anaya Robinson, a senior policy strategist for ACLU Colorado, said he is concerned the technology could be used to surveil civilians in Aurora.

“There’s definitely civil rights and civil liberties issues,” Robinson said. “There are concerns about privacy, concerns about overreach with surveillance.”
