LAPD allegedly warned by tech giant to stop creating and using phony accounts to spy on criminal suspects

According to multiple reports, Meta, the company formerly known as Facebook, contacted the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) via letter and requested it stop using “dummy” accounts on its platform to conduct surveillance on other users who the police may regard as criminal suspects.

On Nov. 11, Meta’s Roy L. Austin Jr., Vice President and Deputy General Counsel, sent a three-page letter to Chief Michel R. Moore alleging his department was creating phony social media accounts and even impersonating legitimate users.
