NYC Cops Amassing Stolen Cell Phone Records

According to the New York Times, if your phone is stolen in NYC, the police will obtain your phone records and put them in a searchable database without your knowledge or permission.

The call records from the stolen cellphones are integrated into a database known as the Enterprise Case Management System, according to Police Department documents from the detective bureau. Each phone number is hyperlinked, enabling detectives to cross-reference it against phone numbers in other files.
