In its original form, this bill would have ensured privacy and public safety by protecting communities from unwarranted police drone surveillance and preventing police from weaponizing drones. The ACLU of Connecticut supported this original version of the bill but opposed an added amendment that would allow police to weaponize drones. Included below is our testimony supporting the original version of H.B. 7260, which did not include a weaponization amendment. For more information, read our statement opposing the amendment to allow police to weaponize drones, and our statement regarding the defeat of the bill that would have proactively allowed police to weaponize drones.
