UMass Cops Sue University

(Amherst, MA) — Eighteen UMass police officers have sued the university over the use of surveillance equipment. The cops say video cameras at the campus police station have been recording their personal conversations without their consent. The cameras were installed in March 2011, but police say they weren’t informed of the cameras’ capabilities until nearly a year later. The suit charges a violation of the Massachusetts wiretap statute.
