"The report which follows is the result of two years of work by the National Commission for the Review of Federal and State Laws Relating to Wiretapping and Electronic Surveillance. In the course of its two years of work, the Commission held 17 days of hearings, receiving testimony from more than 100 witnesses. In August 1974, 14 experienced prosecutors and investigators conferred for three days in an attempt to determine, how, when, and why electronic surveillance can best be used in, law enforcement. Commission staff members visited 46 State and 12 Federal law-enforcement jurisdictions to study and report on the manner in which court authorized and consensual electronic surveillance is being used. Background studies of various aspects of electronic surveillance were\prepared by 0 the Commission staff and consultants. (A majority of the Commission determined not to study the use of electronic surveillance in national security cases.) This volume contains the Findings and Recommendations of the Commission, a Summary of the Evidence considered by it, and Minority and Concurring Reports. The testimony taken at our hearings and the reports, of the staff and consultants have been published in five separate volumes of supporting materials."
