Released publicly today by the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS).
The Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS or Department) Unmanned Aircraft Systems Privacy, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties Working Group has published best practices to assist government agencies in building unmanned aircraft system programs founded on strong privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties protections.
These best practices [and embedded below] outline privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties practices to consider before initiating an unmanned aircraft program. They are based on the DHS Fair Information Practice Principles and civil rights and civil liberties protections. These recommendations reflect the Department’s considerable experience operating unmanned aircraft systems in securing the Nation’s borders and supporting communities during natural disasters and emergencies.
While primarily intended for DHS and its local, state, and federal government partners and grantees, the private sector may also find these best practices valuable and instructive in creating unmanned aircraft system programs.
