The effect of this policy is that not only are images from inside such vehicles recorded but also all conversations that take place in such vehicles, whether they are between the driver and a passenger, between passengers themselves or between a passenger and another person on the other end of a mobile phone. The UK Information Commissioner considered Southampton City Council’s policy in light of the Data Protection Act 1998, which requires personal data to processed in accordance with Eight Data Protection Principles. In a press release accompanying the enforcement notice, the UK Information Commissioner stated that Southampton City Council’s policy had “gone too far”.

But now an international protocol about how to best monitor and track people online has been disclosed for the first time—offering a unique insight into covert police methodology. Ryan Gallagher is a journalist who reports on surveillance, security, and civil liberties. Follow Buried in a recent 158-page U.N. report on how terrorists use the Internet is the so-called “protocol of a systematic approach.”

Almost without exception, law enforcement agencies around the world refuse to talk publicly about these tactics and how they use them because they say doing so could compromise security. That is why it is highly unusual that the United Nations has chosen to publish the protocol in full—and why attention being drawn to it might unsettle police chiefs.

VPC WASHINGTON — At least 50 U.S. law enforcement agencies have secretly equipped their officers with radar devices that allow them to effectively peer through the walls of houses to see whether anyone is inside, a practice raising new concerns about the extent of government surveillance. Those agencies, including the FBI and the U.S. Marshals Service, began deploying the radar systems more than two years ago with little notice to the courts and no public disclosure of when or how they would be used. The technology raises legal and privacy issues because the U.S. The radars work like finely tuned motion detectors, using radio waves to zero in on movements as slight as human breathing from a distance of more than 50 feet.
