About Us

We See You Watching Lexington is an informal coalition of grassroots activists concerned about privacy and government surveillance in Lexington, Kentucky.

Our goal is to “watch the watchers,” and ensure surveillance programs operated by the Lexington Police Department and other government agencies are transparent, accountable, and kept within strict parameters.

We See You Watching Lexington has the support of several national organizations fighting the surveillance state, including OffNow.org, the Tenth Amendment Center, EFF, and the ACLU.

One of our primary goals is to see Lexington join the Community Control Over Police Surveillance (CCOPS) initiative. Last fall, local government officials in multiple cities announced plans to launch legislative efforts to pass ordinances that will take the first step toward limiting the unchecked use of surveillance technologies that violate basic privacy rights and feed into a broader national surveillance state.
