In light of the news reports from Motherboard and Vice News that the RCMP has allowed other police departments to use the RCMP’s Stingrays or has given other police departments access to the data captured from their Stingrays, the question is not whether the VPD “has” such a device, but whether it has access to one . We are signed on to the letter below requesting that the VPD clarify whether it has access to the RCMP’s devices or access to data collected from the RCMP’s devices.
