Civil rights groups say use of Stingrays is unauthorized, can interfere with emergency calls

The American Civil Liberties Union has posted an interactive U.S. map tracking the use of CS simulators as well as a list of the federal agencies known to have the technology. The list includes 66 agencies in 24 states.

The complaint to the FCC comes just days after the Justice Department found that the Baltimore Police Department routinely violated civil rights of the city’s black residents. Police had a “pattern or practice” of making unconstitutional stops and using excessive force against residents exercising First Amendment Rights, according to the Justice Department report released Aug. 10.
