The Project on Government Oversight, otherwise known as POGO, is a Washington pubic interest group, on the cutting edge of accountability. POGO is calling attention to the growth of aerial surveillance in America with a conference on March 7.

This is not the NSA-CIA version of spying–mass surveillance and espionage–but a more ordinary task carried out by, say your local police department.

An array of experts on privacy, technology, civil rights, and civil liberties will examine the impact of emerging aerial surveillance systems. We’ll discuss the growing power of aerial surveillance, how we should view it in light of other emerging surveillance technologies and evolving legal standards, how it threatens civil rights and civil liberties, and potential policy responses.
