Warrant will be required to track cellphone locations Submitted: 04/24/2014
Madison - Wisconsin police will now need a warrant to track the location of your cellphone. Governor Scott Walker signed the cell phone tracking bill yesterday. The measure passed the Legislature in February with no opposition. Under the new law, police would have to give details about their investigation when trying to get a warrant to track a cellphone. That includes the owner of the phone or whoever is using it. They will also outline what they're investigating, and how the cellphone might be used in criminal activity. The bill was among 55 bills Walker signed privately. (Copyright 2014 Associated Press - All Rights Reserved)
