In 2014, legislation was enacted to require law enforcement to get a warrant before using a drone in a criminal investigation. That same law also prohibited cellphone location tracking, but only covered real-time information and not historical data.
The drone law is positive first step for the state, and it should be strengthened by amending it to prohibit weapons. Additional legislation should be introduced and passed on the following issues as well. Take action today to continue moving this process forward!
