• The ACLU’s “Civil Conversation” series presents a discussion led by Greg Hazarabedian on the use of police body cameras to promote transparency and provide valuable evidence. Policies that govern the use of body cameras could make this either a useful tool or an invasion of privacy. Come hear about the issues and participate in the discussion from 5:30 to 5:45 pm Monday, May 18, at the Eugene Public Library Bascom Room. Free and open to the public. Food and drinks allowed.
