The Boston Police Department plans to buy a $1.4 million social media surveillance tool capable of building out complex associational profiles of users, tracking posts by location, performing ‘sentiment’ analysis, and much, much more. A detailed description of what the department is looking for is laid out in an 88-page request for proposals dated October 2016. Bids for the contract were due at the end of that month, and the department is apparently going to make a decision about which company to hire on or around December 5.
