Tacoma police change how they seek permission to use cellphone tracker

Tacoma police have changed the way they request permission to use a device that allows them to track a person’s cellphone after local judges complained about not being informed about the existence of the so-called cell site simulator. Police also have promised not to retain data of innocent people whose cellphone data is swept up by the machine.
