New York City Council Member Gale Brewer issued a press release detailing her sponsorship of the End Correctional Community Surveillance ("ECCoS") Act

The act would end the indiscriminate and unconstitutional recording of phone calls for people currently in NYC Department of Correction custody. “NYC’s Department of Correction and surveillance company Securus Technologies have constructed a far-reaching spying system with devastating impacts on those who rely on the jails’ phone system to stay connected. The End Correctional Community Surveillance Act (ECCoS) ensures that New Yorkers can talk to loved ones who are detained in city jails without fear that their private thoughts and intimacies will be spied on or their biometric, location, and financial information will be stolen,” said Elizabeth Daniel Vasquez, Director of Brooklyn Defenders’ Science and Surveillance Project.
