Supervisors in San Francisco voted Tuesday, Sept. 20, 2022, for a trial run allowing police to monitor in real time private surveillance cameras in certain circumstances, despite strong objections from civil liberties groups alarmed by the potential impact to privacy. The ability to monitor in real time was requested by Breed and supported by merchants and residents who say police officers need more tools to combat drug dealing and retail theft.
