New Alaska Bill Aids Emergency Search Operations by Accessing Phone Data Without Warrant

Published

on

In the US, the Alaska House of Representatives has passed a bill allowing law enforcement to access cellphone and satellite phone data without a warrant in cases of emergency specifically when searching for lost individuals. The bill, designed to facilitate faster rescue operations, was inspired by tragic incidents and aims to prevent potential future losses.

The legislation mandates communication companies to comply with law enforcement requests during emergencies involving risks of death or serious harm. Despite some concerns over privacy and civil liberties, amendments have been made to address potential abuse, making misuse of the system a punishable offense. The Alaska legislative session also saw the passage of other bills, including updates to self-storage facility liens, commercial fireworks regulations, telemedicine laws, and the revival of the state’s citizen advisory commission on federal areas.
