Police are secrety installing GPS devices, audio and video equipment on boats
Maine's Marine Patrol is allowed to put secret surveillance devices inside boats.
According to an article in the Portland Press Herald, the Maine Department of Marine Resources (DMR) wants the Marine Patrol to secretly install electronic surveillance devices on the boats of fishermen suspected of violating state fishing regulations.
Did you catch that, police will secretly spy on anyone suspected of violating fishing regulations!
If this sounds like 'predictive policing' give yourself a gold star. Last year, I warned everyone that police would use 'predictive policing' as an excuse to spy on and arrest innocent people.
