Amazon's Ring doorbell cameras, drones and a number of other surveillance technologies are being used by law enforcement agencies to monitor communities across the U.S., including Black Lives Matter protests.

According to a new searchable database called the Atlas of Surveillance, Amazon Ring has video-sharing partnerships with more than 1,300 law enforcement agencies across the U.S., including the Los Angeles Police Department in California, the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department in Missouri and the Louisville Metro Police Department in Kentucky.

The partnerships involve an agreement that allows the departments "special access" to Amazon Ring's Neighbors app, which provides users with crime and safety alerts.

According to the database, drones are used by more than 1,000 law enforcement agencies: the Boston Police Department has three drones, while the New York Police Department operates 14. Other surveillance technologies being used include facial recognition, currently used by more than 350 agencies, according to the database.

2. How can a police department keep track of trump's crimes?

Jurisdiction is first problem and then I donít see how a Chicago cop (for example)could do what you mentioned even if they wanted too.
