(Sacramento) – Assemblymember Jim Cooper (D-Elk Grove), along with the Sacramento County District Attorney’s office, crime victim’s families, and bill supporters, announced at a state capitol news conference the introduction of Assembly Bill 1681. The legislation will help law enforcement investigate and prosecute suspected criminals and criminal organizations that are involved in human trafficking and other serious crimes. In 2014, cell phone manufactures began providing new operating systems for smartphones and tablets, these new operating systems employ, by default, “full-disk encryption” (FDE). That can be a problem for law enforcement investigators. “Human traffickers are using encrypted cell phones to run and conceal their criminal activities,” said Assemblymember Cooper. “Full-disk encrypted operating systems provide criminals an invaluable tool to prey on women, children, and threaten our freedoms while making the legal process of judicial court orders useless.” Learn more about AB 1681 in this Assembly Access video.
