Stop councils etc from misusing RIPA Act 2000

This Act is regularly being abused. Councils and others use covert surveillance on citizens that violates our Human Rights. This intrusion into our privacy is disproportionate to the actual risk we pose to society, it is used for instance to spy on residents to see if we are doing our rubbish properly. Nobody is checking or enforcing that this surveillance complies with RIPA. We cannot protect ourselves from this abuse because it is carried out covertly. The same holds true for MI5's indiscriminate use of phone and email interception. We can't even seek justice because we can't get the required proof, the evidence. And of course all this is carried out 'in the public interest', again it is impossible for us to prove that it is only in the government's interest, not the public's because the government decides what is 'in the public interest' when actually it is in their own interest – to retain power over us.

Stop using mobile phones as tracking devices

Mobile phone companies are required by law to track the location of every phone and store those location details for 12 months. This applies to everyone, no matter how innocent.

Mobile phone companies should be forbidden from retaining location data for any longer than is required to provide their services (minutes or hours), unless the customer has opted-in to longer retention, or where surveillance has been authorised by a court warrant.

Regulate ANPR and end general surveillance of all motorists

There are around 10,000 Automatic Number Plate Recognition cameras on British roads, they are run by ACPO, and a central database stores vehicles' movements for 2 years. No law governs their installation or use.

ANPR should be regulated. Mobile ANPR cameras should be permitted as part of police operations. Static cameras should normally not be permitted except where they serve a dual purpose (eg. London congestion charge cameras). Records on vehicles where there is no reasonable suspicion of crime should be deleted immediately (again unless there is a dual purpose, when data retention would not be by the police). ANPR for policing purposes should be operated by the police, or by some other body that is subject to proper oversight.

Remove the ability for local councils to use Anti Terror surveillance laws to snoop on citizens

The Anti Terror laws also known as RIPA (Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 200) should be modified to put the checks and balances back in to prevent local councils from misusing or abusing the law.

At present there are well documented cases where councils have used surveillance techniques reserved for anti-terrorism to spy on whether citizens have cleaned up after their dogs, put the right rubbish in bins, repairing cars in the street and even checking watching whether parents are in the correct catchment area for schools.

For more information on RIPA click here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regulation_of_Investigatory_Powers_Act_2000 and for examples of where the law is being misused simply google "councils using anti terror laws"
