The National Law Journal reveals that a law enforcement surveillance tool known as mail cover, which was seriously abused 30 years ago, has reemerged in recent years and its popularity is gaining among law enforcement agencies. "A mail cover consists of recording the information on the outside of all the mail delivered to the target home or business. It is done by the post office at the request of a local, state or federal law enforcement agency and lasts for one or more 30-day period."
