The Coming Battle Over High-Tech
Police Gear And Your Right To Privacy
Retina Scan Iris scans, facial recognition and fingerprint scanning are just some of the latest tools now available to local police. Departments are gearing up with new high-tech, hand-held equipment to make their jobs easier. But, strong Constitutional challenges are likely brewing. They will center on your reasonable expectation of privacy as a U.S. citizen and the unreasonable search of your person without a warrant. 


Be aware that if you give your consent, the police may conduct a search that would otherwise require a warrant. Schneckloth v. Bustamonte, 412 U.S. 218 (1973). When you haven't given your consent, however, questions abound about the police's ability to employ certain electronic data collection techniques. For instance, can the police scan your iris without a warrant? Is your biometric data protected by the Fourth Amendment? At what point have you consented or given permission to the collection of electronic data?
