Annotation: The military law enforcement community increasingly relies upon electronic surveillance and other related investigative approaches to form cases for successful prosecution.
Abstract: It has been the experience of the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command that not everyone within the Army trial prosecution, trial defense, appellate, and law enforcement communities fully understands these investigative techniques nor the myriad of regulatory, constitutional, and statutory strictures which govern their use. This article provides an overview of a variety of electronic surveillance and related techniques available to the military law enforcement community and examines the authorization procedures required prior to their use. Definitions of legal terms peculiar to electronic surveillance are provided. Exceptions to the usual approval process are discussed as are jurisdictional considerations. Use of video surveillance techniques, tracking devices, and pagers are also explored. 250 notes
