Submission + - Seattle PD mum on tracking by its new WiFi mesh network

An anonymous reader writes: The Stranger reports that Seattle's police department has installed a WiFi mesh network paid for by the Department of Homeland Security.

FTA: The SPD declined to answer more than a dozen questions from The Stranger, including whether the network is operational, who has access to its data, what it might be used for, and whether the SPD has used it (or intends to use it) to geo-locate people's devices via their MAC addresses or other identifiers.
