17 Bottom Line: Will result in increased roving tap activity. Section 206: Roving surveillance authority under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978.Bottom Line: Will result in increased roving tap activity.Expands FISA court orders to allow "roving" surveillance in a manner similar to ECPA wiretaps. (The federal wiretap statute, but not FISA, was amended 15 years ago to allow "roving taps.") A roving wiretap enables government investigators to intercept all of a suspect's wire or electronic communications relating to the conduct under investigation, regardless of the suspect's location when communicating. The quintessential situation requiring a roving wiretap in the past has been when a suspect goes from phone booth to phone booth numerous times in an effort to prevent his calls from being wiretapped. Since September 11, 2001, the Administration has cited surveillance challenges posed by "disposable" cell phone situations?where a suspect buys a cell phone on day one and a week later buys another cell phone with another number and moves from cell phone to cell phone seeking to avoid interception. But "roving tap" authority is not limited to voice communications; it could equally be used to intercept the communications of a suspect who changes Internet accounts every day, or several times a day.
