Should the police track and store your whereabouts?

At Gun Owners Civil Rights Alliance, “Civil Rights” is our middle name.

While this isn’t a gun rights issue, it tracks very closely with the civil rights we fight for:

Minneapolis Police (as well as many other departments) use automated license plate readers to log millions of times, dates, and locations of cars every month. They know where you were, and they keep this data as long as they want.

A proposed law, House File 474 (and Senate companion SF385), would force police departments to immediately delete data on non-suspect cars (like yours).

This bill is scheduled for a vote tomorrow in the House. If you think that the police shouldn’t track the every move of innocent citizens, ask your state senator representative to support HF474/SF385.

The ACLU summarizes the issue well:
