Missing Child Emergency Electronic Location Info


The bill requires a supervising representative of a law enforcement agency to order a designated security employee of a wireless telecommunications provider to provide the law enforcement agency, without requiring the agency to obtain a court order, location information concerning the telecommunications device of a missing child if: An emergency situation exists because the time required to obtain a search warrant or other court order authorizing the acquisition of the information would frustrate the timely and safe recovery of the missing child; and The request for location is made to the law enforcement agency by the missing child's parent or legal guardian. However, a law enforcement agency shall not order the location information if the request is made by a parent or legal guardian who is a restrained person pursuant to an active protection order that identifies the missing child as a protected person, or if a law enforcement agency has an articulable reason to believe there is a custodial issue that has not been reviewed by a court. (Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
