StingRay Use Update via ACLU

Very few Americans realize just how high tech America’s police forces have become..or that they possess technology that is not only invasive, it’s downright dangerous.
While I could name quite a few hidden “tools” I’ll just stick to one at a time. And one such advancement in police spyware is the stingray.
“Stingrays, also known as “cell site simulators” or “IMSI catchers,” are invasive cell phone surveillance devices that mimic cell phone towers and send out signals to trick cell phones in the area into transmitting their locations and identifying information. When used to track a suspect’s cell phone, they also gather information about the phones of countless bystanders who happen to be nearby.”

check the map to see if your city or state employs the stingray!
