Ohio Police Get More Time to Plant Tracking Devices

June 26, 2014  | 

The Ohio Supreme Court is giving law enforcement extra time to install tracking devices after obtaining a search warrant, reports The Columbus Dispatch.

A rule change announced Monday by the court, effective next Tuesday, will give prosecutors and law enforcement up to 10 days, instead of the current three, to safely install an electronic device to track a person or property. The device may remain in place no longer than 45 days.

The rule also requires that suspects whose vehicles are tracked be given a copy of the search warrant within 10 days after the tracker is removed, unless police can show that a longer delay is warranted.
