In 2020, Google received over 11,000 geofence requests from law enforcement agencies across the country, a dramatic increase from just 941 requests in 2018. Geofence searches create a virtual perimeter around an area, allowing law enforcement officers to access critical location information of individuals in
that area. They are digital dragnets involving the location data of millions, raising deep concerns over Fourth Amendment and privacy protections. This training will cover the mechanics of geofence warrants and present strategies for defense lawyers to
challenge their constitutionality.
