ACLU of Maryland Opposes Cell Phone Tracking Bill




    How Telehealth Technology is Revolutionizing Healthcare

    Officials from the American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland are urging lawmakers to oppose legislation that will allow police to obtain cell phone tracking information without a search warrant.

    The civil liberties group will testify in front of the House Judiciary Committee Tuesday at 1 p.m.

    ACLU officials say that law enforcement should obtain a search warrant based upon probable cause before accessing this information.

    According to the ACLU, mobile phones register their location with cell phone networks several times a minute.

    Officials say that knowing a person's location over time can invade his or her privacy.
