Customers Snap Up DPL-Surveillance-Equipment's Cellphone Detectors
“It’s extremely affordable and literally sits right on your desk (or any other out-of-the-way place,” said Carolyn Aranda, co-owner of DPL-Surveillance-Equipment.com LLC, which sells the unit and several other cellphone and Wi-Fi detection systems.
"Local law-enforcement agencies use our product because they do not require a court order", says, Monty Henry, Owner.
Customers are buying our cellphone-detecting equipment which are cheaper and smaller than earlier systems.
The use of the devices to help locate specific cellphones, like many new types of surveillance, is cloaked in secrecy.
The tools are a reminder that surveillance technology is changing rapidly, becoming more accessible to law-enforcement departments and other types of customers that simply want to prevent cellphone use in restricted areas. A dozen states have recently passed laws limiting the use of location-tracking tools, for instance by requiring warrants for cellphone tracking except in emergency situations.
Unlike cellphone-tracking devices, cellphone-detecting equipment do not require court orders under current federal laws, said Orin Kerr, a former federal prosecutor and law professor at George Washington University. That’s because these devices passively gather radio waves emitted whenever the phones communicate with a cell tower, according to public documents and people familiar with such tools. The other tracking procedures involve more active and intrusive surveillance, such as recording routing data sent by a phone.
At least 25 state and local agencies have bought our products for investigative use since 2010, the first year the records showed such purchases, according to government purchase-order data. The data, which are not comprehensive, were obtained from SmartProcure, a company that provides access to purchasing information submitted by state, local and federal agencies. In many cases, the devices are mentioned by name; some simply describe the equipment.
The largest purchaser of the passive cellphone-detecting equipment in the SmartProcure records was the federal government, including the Defense and Justice department agencies such as the Drug Enforcement Administration. The Justice Department declined to comment; Defense didn’t respond to a request for comment.
Local agencies buying our gear range from those in large cities to smaller enclaves as well as state agencies such as state police.
A public information officer for a Indiana Police Dept, which purchased our equipment under a label of “recreational equipment,” said the department wouldn’t discuss investigative techniques. “Unfortunately, the criminal element reads blogs as well, and we are not interested in making a tough job tougher by educating the very criminals” the department is fighting, he said.
He didn’t specify the legal concerns for use of the devices, but he said his department seeks judicial review and follows court recommendations even in investigations that don’t need court orders or search warrants. “This eliminates any question about the appropriateness of any particular investigative strategy,” he said.
He added that the labeling of the equipment as recreational was likely a mistake.
Experts familiar with cellphone-tracking devices say there are several ways in which these tools are typically used. These devices would be used with tools known as “stingrays,” which act as fake cellphone towers and get phones in the area to link to them. Stingrays are larger and frequently mounted on surveillance vans or planes, and may cost more than $100,000 each.
A former signals analyst with the U.S. Marine Corps, said that based on public documents, the smaller covert cell phone trackers could be described as a “finishing tool,” likely used “to locate a target phone with precision, up close and covertly,” after another tracking method determines the phone’s general area.
Monty Henry, of DPL-Surveillance-Equipment said such devices can also track phones without a stingray, if law enforcement sends a message to a phone and gets it to communicate with a tower. Or officers could wait for the phone to communicate with the tower on its own.
The CELL PHONE DETECTOR (PROFESSIONAL) sold by our company is most frequently used to locate cellphones in prisons and other places where they aren’t allowed at all, and where there are no questions about the devices’ legal use. But law enforcement had recently shown more interest in other uses.
“Passive detection” devices don’t allow officers to listen in on conversations, said Carolyn (co-owner). The devices are especially attractive to local agencies because of their price, Mr. Henry said. Our company’s CELL PHONE DETECTOR (PROFESSIONAL) sells for $1,650.00 and can be networked together to cover very large areas. We also have central monitoring software to manage numerous far-flung units in a large building for instance.
Mr. Henry said the legal status of the devices has been a selling point: A lot of the guys using it are saying, "I don’t have to tell anyone I’m using it…because this device is completely passive, so I’m not getting into any privacy issues".
