Lawsuit over San Diego police cell phone surveillance devices

A legal advocacy group has sued the San Diego Police Department (SDPD) and the city of San Diego in an attempt to force the release of public records relating to stingrays, also known as cell-site simulators.

There is no justification for secrecy about these cell-phone interception devices. They are used by, and owned by, the public. While the details of a specific, current investigation might be confidential, the methods and technology should not be. Attempts to keep that secret are attempts to prevent an informed public debate on the merits and privacy implications of police surveillance, and as such, anathema to a free society.
