A new campaign is calling for Congress to investigate Amazon's surveillance "empire," Fight for the Future announced Tuesday. It's a response to how Amazon's helping police build a surveillance network with its Ring doorbell cameras -- and it now has more than 500 cities partnered to use the footage for law enforcement purposes, according to the digital rights group.

This is a threat to civil liberties, privacy and security, Fight for the Future said, and Amazon can't be trusted to protect people, added Evan Greer, the group's deputy director.

"Amazon is aggressively expanding its for-profit surveillance empire," the campaign -- called Tell Congress: Investigate Amazon's surveillance dragnet -- says. "Amazon provides law enforcement with an automated way to request and access user footage from tens of thousands of Ring surveillance doorbells, en masse without a warrant." .
