Electronic SurveillanceMicroform - 1993
This report examines factors relating to electronic surveillance in British Columbia to determine the frequency of use of electronic surveillance in Canada from 1974-92; the impact of Supreme Court of Canada decisions and other factors contributing to the decline in the use of electronic surveillance; and whether there is variability between jurisdictions in the amount of detail and the length of affidavits required by the courts. Baseline data was obtained from provincial and federal annual reports and selected data shows the number of authorizations granted, those granted with terms and conditions, the types of offences cited in authorizations, and the number of criminal investigations and proceedings commenced where intercepted material was used.
