Since the massive flow of federal grants post 9-11, local police agencies have splurged on all kinds of tech-gadgets to improve law enforcement, and aid in policing.  Some of the gadgets have some real privacy concerns attached to them, such as cell-phone trackers, and license plate readers.  Most of the fears arise from what is done with data gathered from the non-criminal citizens.  As a result, many communities are cracking down on the use of surveillance tech without prior authorization from the city councils or other governing bodies.
