Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Code of Criminal Procedure of 1963. Provides that upon the written complaint of a person under oath or affirmation which states facts sufficient to show probable cause to install and use a tracking device, a judge may issue a search warrant to install and use a tracking device. Provides that a tracking device search warrant must identify the person or property to be tracked, designate the judge to whom it must be returned, and specify a reasonable length of time that the device may be used. Provides that the time must not exceed 45 days from the date the tracking device search warrant was issued. The court may, for good cause, grant one or more extensions for a reasonable period not to exceed 45 days each. Provides that the tracking device search warrant must command the officer to complete the installation authorized by the warrant within a specified time no longer than 10 days from the time of issuance of the tracking device search warrant.
Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Code of Criminal Procedure of 1963. Reinserts the provisions of the bill but: (1) provides that the warrant may authorize or direct a third-party to perform the physical installation of the tracking device or otherwise enable the means by which the movement of the person or property named in the tracking device search warrant may be tracked; (2) provides that the tracking device search warrant may authorize the removal of the tracking device after the use of the tracking device has ended from any public place where the tracking device may be located; and (3) makes other technical changes in the bill.
