SF Police Cuts Ties with FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force

The San Francisco police department is suspending ties with the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force.


The concern is that local police departments could be used for surveillance that is broad and possibly unconstitutional.

The action comes amid growing concerns that local police could be used to spy on Muslims and people who disagree with the Trump administration.


The 10-year JTTF agreement was set to expire in March and policy could be revised.

Kudos to SF.
