New York City Police Department documents obtained by The Verge show that police camera teams were deployed to hundreds of Black Lives Matter and Occupy Wall Street protests from 2011–2013 and 2016. Originally acquired through a Freedom of Information Law request by New York attorney David Thompson of Stecklow, Cohen & Thompson, the records are job reports from the NYPD’s Technical Assistance Response Unit (TARU) that document over 400 instances in which the unit’s video team attended, and sometimes filmed, demonstrations. More important than the records the NYPD turned over, however, are those that it claims it cannot find: namely, any documents demonstrating that legal reviews and authorizations of these surveillance operations took place.

Automated road traffic management systems, surveillance systems and storage for the vast amount of data being generated will make up a core part of the future smart city infrastructure. Much of this information is sensitive so the storage technology used needs to be the best available. Understanding how storage works and how end users can access it is now the focus for storage companies as they look to facilitate the adoption of cloud-based data centers. As smart cities grow, video surveillance is set to become a key target for storage companies over the next few years and as the cost of network video surveillance cameras drops below $100 so the cost of implementation will fall. As a result, the most difficult task for storage companies is ensuring the cost of storage or cost per gigabyte falls in-line with this while maintaining high standards of performance, compliance and security over those data management and storage systems.
