Our March 28, 2013 symposium, Privacy Rights and Proactive Investigations: Emerging Constitutional Issues in Law Enforcement, brought together leading scholars and practitioners to explore three issues that have once more thrust Maryland to the frontier of law enforcement: the validity of DNA databases, new approaches and the latest thinking on witness identifications, and the use of tracking devices after United States v. Jones. Issue 3 is dedicated entirely to the articles that served as fodder for both sides of the debate that day, with a foreword by symposium moderator Thiru Vignarajah, Chief of the Major Investigations Unit at the Baltimore City State’s Attorney’s Office; article synopses are available here.
