The United States vs. Jones Case
Chances are if you are reading this blog that you have at some point heard of the groundbreaking United States vs. Jones case that was wrapped up on January 23 this year. You can view our earlier article on the case here for an overview of the case and its findings.
The Supreme Court of the United States of America ruled that investigative vehicle surveillance using a GPS tracking device requires a search warrant to be executed legally. The most important aspect of this ruling is that GPS tracking is legal, so long as it is done so within the specified parameters of a warrant.
Thanks to this ruling, there is no longer any ambiguity as to whether or not GPS tracking is legal and we encourage all users of Javelin and Flat Track devices to ensure that their investigations are always carried out legally – with a search warrant when required.
