EFF Director of Investigations Dave Maass Honored With Sunshine Award For Driving Public Disclosure of Government Surveillance Records

Today, Maass will receive the Sunshine Award from the San Diego Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists (SD-SPJ) in recognition of this important work.

Maass is the driving force behind the EFF-led Atlas of Surveillance project, the largest-ever collection of searchable data on police use of surveillance technologies.

San Diego County was one of early communities examined in work on the Atlas.

He has been previously honored for his investigative series into deaths at San Diego County jails and the use of pepper spray in its juvenile halls.

He is also a Scholar in Residence lecturing on cybersecurity, surveillance and public records laws at the Reynolds School of Journalism at the University of Nevada, Reno.
