Comcast Law Enforcement Handbook Leaked

Comcast’s Law Enforcement Handbook (PDF) was leaked today and posted on Secrecy News.

Here’s what it contains, in easy-to-skim bulletpoint format:

  • Setting up a wiretap costs $1000, includes free month of surveillance, $750 for each additional month, all costs waived if it involves kiddie exploitation
  • Can access call detail records for two years
  • IP assignment address information kept for 180 days
  • Comcast reminds law enforcement agencies of the specific statutes they need to follow if information requests have to do with people outside the country
  • Proper procedure must be followed for using National Security Letters

Overall, pretty dry and hews well to statute.
