TV Reporter Confronts Sacramento Sheriff Over StingRay Surveillance


Believe it or not reporter, Thom Jensen searched through something like 1000 search warrants and could not find a single instance of a judge allowing the Sacramento Sheriff’s Department to use the privacy-shattering device. He also found prosecutors had not been informed of such cases either. The StingRay technology uses a false cell tower to “vacuum in” cell traffic within a one mile radius. In another jurisdiction, officers are trained to credit the resulting information to confidential sources.
