11:36 am
device that pretends to be a spoof of a cell tower. it's a false cell tower. and it's collecting information that people don't know is being collected. >> dorothy glanlsy is a law professor at santa clara known for her work in privacy law. she says there's a whole line of products like the stingray that deliver a similar service to law enforcement. the harpoon the king fish the gossamer that looks kind of like an early '90s cell phone, and they could all be configured to do different things. >> these kinds of devices have many different capacity and one never knows which capacity is in which unit. the fbi knows which capacities are in which units but i really wonder if the board of supervisors has any idea what capacities it's purchasing. >> it should be noted that theport of supervidesors meeting, laurie smith could not provide
11:37 am
the specs or model time to the supervisor. the only lawmaker providing any real pushback on the stingray. >> everything i read about this kind of technology makes me think that it is certainly capable of doing far more than simply identifying someone through a triangulation system. >> so how do we find out what capabilities the technology has and how well it works? >> a lot of the information is kept in a locked vault. we don't know how accurate these things are in the sense of saying it has a radius of 100 feet or 100 yards. we just quite frankly don't know. >> this man is an attorney with the electronic frontier foundation in san francisco and an expert on this technology. he says the fbi and the product manufacturers have a non-disclosure agreement with local governments. meaning local police can't spill the secrets. so information on accuracy capabilities and other aspects remains mum. even in court. >> the one case in baltimore,
11:38 am
basically the judge threatened to hold the officer in contempt to the point where the prosecutors said you know what? forget it. we're not going to use the evidence because we don't want to disclose the details in court. >> to be clear, there are examples of prosecutors and local governments blowing a case pulling back evidence or settling for a lesser charge just to protect the technology at stake here. it's technology that can be very valuable for fighting crime, but if you're looking for oversight as fbi director james comey recently said it's about finding bad guys not revealing the trade secrets. i'm sam brock. that's this edition of "reality check." >> thank you sam. apple likes her photo. umnext at 11:00, a bay area tekke goes nationwide thanks to a new ad campaign. >> plus she turns christmas money into a small fortune for charity. >> we see all the kids we helped, i just think that, like wow.
