Messrs. Tarr, Humason, O'Connor and Fattman moved that the proposed new text be amended by inserting after section _ the following sections:-

"SECTION 1. Paragraph A of section 99 of chapter 272 of the General Laws, as appearing in the 2014 Official Edition, is hereby amended by striking out the third subparagraph and inserting in place thereof the following 2 subparagraphs:-

The general court further finds that in certain circumstances normal investigative procedures may not be effective in the investigation of specific illegal acts not associated with organized crime as enumerated in clause (b) of subparagraph 7 of paragraph B of this section.  Therefore, law enforcement officials may be permitted to use modern methods of electronic surveillance, under strict judicial supervision, when investigating these specific enumerated crimes.

The general court further finds that the uncontrolled development and unrestricted use of modern electronic surveillance devices pose grave dangers to the privacy of all citizens of the commonwealth.  Therefore, the secret use of such devices by private individuals must be prohibited.  The use of such devices by law enforcement officials must be conducted under strict judicial supervision and must be limited to the investigation of designated offenses as defined in subparagraph 7 of paragraph B of this section.  Because the commonwealth has a substantial interest in the investigation and prosecution of designated offenses committed within its borders, this section shall authorize, under appropriate judicial supervision, the interception of electronic communications between parties located outside the commonwealth, so long as the designated offense under investigation is one over which the commonwealth has jurisdiction, and the listening post is within the commonwealth.

SECTION 2. Paragraph B of said section 99 of said chapter 272, as so appearing, is hereby amended by striking out the first subparagraph and inserting in place thereof the following subparagraph:-

1.The term “wire communication” means any transfer made in whole or in part through the use of facilities which allow for the transmission of communications by the aid of wire, cable, wireless, electronic, digital, radio, electromagnetic, satellite, cellular, optical or other technological means in order to achieve a connection between the point of origin and the point of reception, regardless of whether or not such communication travels in part within a switching station or other facility.  The term “wire communication” shall also include: any transfer of signs, signals, writing, images, photographs, videos, texts, sounds, data or intelligence of any nature transmitted in whole or in part by using a cellular telephone, smartphone , personal data assistant or similar device, but shall not include: (i) any communication made through a tone-only paging device; (ii) any communication from a tracking device, defined as an electronic or mechanical device which permits the tracking of the movement of a person or object; or (iii) electronic funds transfer information stored by a financial institution in a communications system used for the electronic storage and transfer of funds .

SECTION 3. Said paragraph B of said section 99 of said chapter 272, as so appearing, is hereby further amended by striking out the third, fourth and fifth subparagraphs and inserting in place thereof the following 3 subparagraphs:-

3.  The term “intercepting device” means any device or apparatus which is capable of transmitting, receiving, amplifying, or recording a wire or oral communication other than a hearing aid or similar device which is being used to correct subnormal hearing to normal; and other than any telephone or telegraph instrument, equipment, facility, or a component thereof, (a) furnished to the subscriber or user by a communications common carrier in the ordinary course of business under its tariff and being used by the subscriber or user in the ordinary course of its business; or (b) being used by a communications common carrier in the ordinary course of its business.  No body-mounted camera with an audio recording feature shall be considered an intercepting device when such an instrument is worn openly by a uniformed investigative or law enforcement officer or one conspicuously displaying his or her badge of authority or other visible indicator of his or her status as an investigative or law enforcement officer.  No vehicle-mounted camera with an audio recording feature shall be considered an intercepting device when it is mounted on a marked law enforcement vehicle, or when such an instrument is used to record a motor vehicle stop or other encounter involving a uniformed law enforcement officer, or one conspicuously displaying his or her badge of authority or other visible indicator of his or her status as a law enforcement officer.

4.  The term ''interception'' means to secretly hear, secretly record, or aid another to secretly hear or secretly record the contents of any wire or oral communication through the use of any intercepting device by any person other than a person given prior authority by all parties to such communication; provided that it shall not constitute an interception (a) for an investigative or law enforcement officer to obtain information in real time concerning the existence of a communication and the identity of the parties to a communication, but not the contents of the communication itself, where such action has been specifically authorized by the order of a court of competent jurisdiction pursuant to the procedure prescribed by 18 U.S.C. § 3123; or (b) for an investigative or law enforcement officer, as defined in this section, to record or transmit a wire or oral communication if the officer is a party to such communication or has been given prior authorization to record or transmit the communication by such a party and if recorded or transmitted in the course of an investigation of a designated offense as defined herein.

5. The term ''contents'', when used with respect to any wire or oral communication, means any information concerning the contents, substance, purport, or meaning of that communication, including any spoken words, visual images or written material.

(b) As used in subsection (a), “specific facts indicating that the person to be detained poses a threat to public safety” shall mean that, at a minimum, any of the following facts are true with respect to such person:

1.the person has engaged in or is suspected of terrorism or espionage, or otherwise poses a danger to national security;

(d) A determination of probable cause for detention shall be made by an appropriate judicial officer and promptly reduced to writing. The appropriate judicial officer shall consider any information presented by the detaining agency, whether or not known at the time of initial detention. The detaining agency shall present the information under oath or affirmation or under the pains and penalties of perjury, and may present the information orally, in person or by any other means, or in writing. If presented in writing, the information may be transmitted to the appropriate judicial officer by facsimile transmission or by electronic mail or by such other electronic means as may be found acceptable by the court. The determination of probable cause for detention shall be an ex parte proceeding. The person detained shall have no right to appear, either in person or by counsel.  If the judicial officer determines that there is not probable cause to believe the person detained is a removable alien, then the judicial officer shall order that the person be released forthwith.  Such a determination and order shall be filed in the District Court having jurisdiction over the location of the detention, together with all written information submitted by the detaining agency.  Such documents shall be filed separately from the records of criminal cases, and shall be open for inspection by the public. If a determination under this subsection is necessary, the detaining agency shall present the information necessary to obtain such determination to the appropriate judicial officer as soon as reasonably possible after the detention begins, but no later than 24 hours after the detention begins.

(e) This section shall not be construed to give rise to a private right of action and shall not be construed so as to make unlawful any arrest in this commonwealth which would otherwise be lawful.”
