Metropolitan Privacy Officer Liz Lyons.

An attorney with experience in cloud computing and cyber security, Liz Lyons was working at the Department of Homeland Security when a co-worker brought up with her the possibility of working for D.C.’s local police department. In an ultimate “lean-in” move, Lyons approached then-police chief Cathy Lanier about creating a “privacy officer” role for the purposes of strengthening ties with community members concerned about the force’s use of technology. Kojo meets Lyons and discusses the role that was created for her.
