Minnesota Law Enforcement Agencies Spying On Cellphones

Townsquare Media

First, we learned that the NSA was tracking all of our information.  Now it appears that even closer to home, right here in Minnesota, law enforcement agencies are gathering information from citizen’s cellphones.   Most of those phones are everyday people, and not criminal. 

Kare11 in the Twin Cities has learned that both the Hennepin County Sheriff’s office and the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension have bought into phone tracking and exploitation software.    The technology mimics a cell phone tower and extracts data from nearby cell phones.

Kare 11 has tried to contact the Hennepin County Sheriff’s office and the BCA but was denied an interview.   USA Today has also done an investigation that there are 25 local agencies across the country using this technology.
