Law enforcement representatives are planning to endorse a proposed federal law that would require Internet service providers to store logs about their customers for 18 months, CNET has learned.
The National Sheriffs’ Association will say it “strongly supports” mandatory data retention during Tuesday’s U.S. House of Representatives hearing on the topic.
Michael Brown, sheriff in Bedford County, Va., and a board member and executive committee member of the National Sheriffs’ Association, is planning to argue that a new law is necessary because Internet providers do not store customer records long enough.
