DHS SAVER Documents on Law Enforcement Technologies
I don't know if these are new to you but thought they might be of interest.
I came across this open series of government reports about surveillance and

Acoustic Surveillance Device Comparative Assessment Report
"In order to provide emergency responders with information on currently

(SPAWARSYSCEN), Charleston, conducted a comparative assessment of
commercially available ASDs for the SAVER Program in November 2006.
Detailed findings are provided in the Acoustic Surveillance Device
Comparative Assessment Report, which is available by request at

Law Enforcement Telecommunications Intercept Surveillance Systems
Telecommunications intercept surveillance systems enable law enforcement
personnel to gather data for investigative purposes. These systems can be
used to track calls to or from a particular number, record audio and data
messages, determine the location cell phone calls were placed from, and help
determine the scope of an investigation by establishing relationships between

Please Note: This is the "master" edition of the SEL, which is updated
immediately as changes are made. It will always be more current than printed
versions of the SEL.
The SEL provides mission-specific sublists designed to support critical mission
ares. These sublists are compiled by subject matter experts who draw appropriate
items from all 21 sections of the SEL as needed. The sublists thus provide
a "tailored SEL" for responders in a specific mission area such as mortuary
operations. Use the selection box below to choose a mission-specific sublist
if desired. The tree below shows the entire SEL.
