‘HailStorm’ is a new device obtained by the Oakland County Sheriff with monies from a U.S. Homeland Security Grant and so far, there isn’t much information available on what exactly it can and cannot do. There were no questions asked when Oakland County commissioners unanimously approved the use of this cellphone tracking device previously used by the US military in Iraq.
Undersheriff Michael McCabe told The Detroit News that the federal Homeland Security Act bars him from discussing the Hailstorm device.

That's got to make for an interesting trial. How can one properly defend yourself in court if the very means of your defense might hinge on a technology your not allowed to know about. That's why we shouldn't be using classified spy tech on our own people. Could you imagine a speeding ticket where the cop says just trust me I know I got you but I won't be able to tell you how just take your ticket and move along...all because a radar gun was never declassified. Good god even Orwell would be astonished we got so far so fast.
