SB 957 - This act prohibits law enforcement agencies from indiscriminately gathering, maintaining, or disseminating intelligence information about any person engaged solely in lawful conduct, unless there is reasonable suspicion that the person is involved in criminal activity.

In addition, this act requires law enforcement officers to secure a warrant prior to the search or seizure of garbage located on a street curb or within the curtilage of a house. Under this act, the ownership of garbage or trash set out for collection is transferred to the provider of solid waste collection services.
