Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Illinois Freedom from Tracking Device Surveillance Act. Provides that a law enforcement agency may not use a tracking device to gather evidence or other information about the location of a person or his or her property, except that a law enforcement agency may use a tracking device to gather evidence or other information about the location of a person or his or her property only if the law enforcement agency first obtains a search warrant signed by a judge authorizing the use of a tracking device. Provides that evidence obtained or collected in violation of these provisions is not admissible as evidence in any criminal, civil, administrative, or other proceeding. Provides that if during any calendar year a law enforcement agency obtains a tracking device warrant, then on the following April 1 it shall report in writing to the Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority the number of times that it did so. Provides that on July 1 of each year, the Authority shall publish on its publicly available website a concise report that lists every law enforcement agency that obtained a tracking device warrant during the prior calendar year, and for each of those agencies, the number of tracking device warrants.
