Thanks for signing on to our petition to end the partnership/negotiations between the Arlington County Police Department and Amazon’s Ring.
We’ve been working with a reporter on uncovering the details behind the contract. As detailed in his article, apparently Arlington County Police Department is no longer "actively" seeking a partnership with Ring. https://www.bizjournals.com/washington/news/2020/07/15/arlington-police-wont-partner-with-ring-for-now.html
We know this means the talks might not be happening right now, but could be reopened in the future, and that those conversations will continue to happen behind closed doors.
We will remain vigilant on the issue and still be presenting this petition to the county board and demand transparency, as our concerns are still relevant regarding the surveillance of Black and Brown communities.
Thank you for your support! Black Lives Matter & Defund the Police!
