California State Assembly Introduces Legislation to Ban GPS Tracking Without Consent of Subject

California State Assembly GPS Tracking Laws Affecting InvestigatorsEditor’s Note:  This bill was introduced into the California State Assembly on February 15, 2011. We hope that California private investigators, associations and others concerned can come together with one voice in reference to the following proposed changes to current California electronic tracking laws.  If the complete defeat of this Assembly Bill is not feasible, then we hope that  legislators will include provisions that exclude private investigators from new restrictions.
