Wis. Senate Passes Cellphone Tracking Ban

Created: 02/18/2014 4:47 PM WDIO.com

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Police would be prohibited from tracking cellphone locations without a warrant under a bill headed to Gov. Scott Walker.

The Senate passed the measure on Tuesday on a voice vote. The Assembly approved it last week.

Under the bill, police would have to submit details about their investigation in the application for a warrant to track a cellphone.

That information would include the subject of the investigation, a statement of the crime and a statement of probable cause to believe there is criminal activity. Police would also have to decide how tracking the phone would yield relevant information.
