Interesting read. And, yes, your local PD probably does have a Stingray.

the US Marshalls have seized state records to keep them from being released via a FOIA request

The state police have the technology here. I'm sure inter-agency co-operation would make it available to the locals.

Android App, CellMapper

I've cruised around mapping where the towers are. If you watch it regularly you can identify via triangulation if/where a stingray is hijacking your cell service.

We should have a competition to see who can find a stingray first.

None here that I am aware of

the ones i've read about are hand-held units that are accurate enough to let LEOs know what room a phone is in

Not positive about stingrays but I'd guess they did come w/ the plate scanners that came in locally. City got an $80K dhs payout and they've been putting the plate scanners to good use. I also found out 2 times last week that my plate is related to a suspended license, yet me and my wife have no problems with our licenses...... Last cop said I should fix the problem. "Ok, how do I do that?" "Well...............I'm not sure, gotta go."

Our plate reader only gave a response to the plate, not persons associated with it

Our local PD probably doesn't. the Sheriff Dept most likely does.

One of the Pittsburgh news stations did a big article on it being in widespread use in our area

That article appears to have been since removed off the interwebs

Go figure

Most likely, we are the 911 call center for several surrounding juristications and the rich kids on the block.

I was wondering about that the second time, but thankfully the cops were really cool both times. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that that trend continues. But don't worry, if there is a felony stop I'll start a drama laden thread in GD.
