Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Citizen Privacy Protection Act. Provides that a law enforcement agency may not use a cell site simulator device, except to locate or track the location of a communications device or to identify a communications device. Except as provided in the Freedom From Location Surveillance Act, a court order based on probable cause that a person whose location information is sought has committed, is committing, or is about to commit a crime, is required for any permitted use of a cell site simulator device. Provides that an application for a court order to use a cell site simulator device, including an emergency application under the Freedom From Location Surveillance Act, must include a description of the nature and capabilities of the cell site simulator device to be used and the manner and method of its deployment, including whether the cell site simulator device will obtain data from non-target communications devices. Provides that an application for a court order to use a cell site simulator device, including an emergency application under the Freedom From Location Surveillance Act, must also include a description of the procedures that will be followed to protect the privacy of non-targets of the investigation, including the immediate deletion of data obtained from non-target communications devices. Provides that if the court finds by a preponderance of the evidence that a law enforcement agency used a cell site simulator to gather information in violation of the limits in the Act, then the information shall be presumed to be inadmissible in any judicial or administrative proceeding. Defines "cell site simulator device", "communications device", and "law enforcement agency".

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the bill as introduced with the following changes. Provides that if the cell site simulator device is used to locate or track a known communications device, all non-target data must be deleted as soon as reasonably practicable, but no later than once every 24 hours. Provides that if the cell site simulator device is used to identify an unknown communications device, all non-target data must be deleted as soon as reasonably practicable, but no later than within 72 hours of the time that the unknown communications device is identified, absent a court order preserving the non-target data and directing that it be filed under seal with the court. Provides that the court may retain data obtained from a non-target communications device under a court order showing good cause for no longer than the period required under Supreme Court Rules. Provides that the law enforcement agency is prohibited from accessing data obtained from a non-target communications device for the purpose of any investigation not authorized by the original warrant. Provides that a court order issued may be sealed upon a showing of need, but for no more than 180 days, with any extensions to be granted upon a certification that an investigation remains active or a showing of exceptional circumstances.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 2
Provides that the law enforcement agency is prohibited from accessing data obtained from a non-target communications device for the purpose of any investigation not authorized by the original court order (rather than warrant).
