San Francisco supervisors have introduced legislation to ensure San Francisco Police Officers working on the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force comply with local standards governing police intelligence and investigative activities, which are more protective of privacy and civil rights than the FBI’s Guidelines. The proposal is modeled on a similar ordinance passed in Portland, Oregon last year.
