Require Court Order For Any Covert Surveillance

Any body, including the police, should be required to obtain a court order in order to perform any covert surveillance of specific individuals. Where obtaining a warrant would prevent the police acting on an immediate threat or pursuing a lead in an investigation, a court order should be obtained alongside the ongoing surveillance and, if denied, the subject of the surveillance must be informed. The court order required should be proportional to the amount of surveillance, the degree of the suspected offence and the amount of evidence against the individual.

 

The following policies have been approved by the Political Council and will be sent to the membership to be voted on:

-Require law enforcement to obtain a court order in order to perform any covert surveillance of specific individuals or groups.

 

-Where obtaining a warrant would prevent the police acting on an immediate threat or pursuing a lead in an investigation, a court order should be obtained alongside the ongoing surveillance and, if denied, the subject of the surveillance must be informed.

 

-Enforce laws that if the court finds that the surveillance was for political, personal, or other illegitimate purposes, the official who gave the order for the surveillance could face penalties.

 

-The court order required should be proportional to the amount of surveillance, the degree of the suspected offence and the amount of evidence against the individual or group.
