Unauthorized GPS tracking of vehicle

A reader sent me this comment today. Seems like I expressed an opinion about this a couple of years ago.

"The United States Supreme Court has ruled that Law Enforcement must have a signed search warrant from a judge to attach any type of GPS tracking device to a vehicle, or it would be a clear violation of the amendment rights of a person."

The reader asks if anyone at MCSD has any knowledge of a tracking device ever being attached by any deputy to a vehicle of a deputy or corrections officer.

"vehicle of a deputy", I misread,
make that a no.

I remember now that I had heard that an MCSD detective had put a GPS tracking device on the car driven by _____, from the office right down the hall. I think you know whom I mean. Not sure if employees of that office are all State employees or if that one might be a County employee.
