"It just happened to be my day, I guess," said Newport Beach resident Roman, 28, who has been with department three years.

SACRAMENTO -- The state Senate on Monday approved a measure that would expand instances in which law enforcement officers in California would have to get search warrants before they can access the public's email. Sen. Mark Leno (D-San Francisco) won Republican support for his privacy measure after including an exemption for emergency situations in which  there is a risk of the destruction of evidence. Leno said clear rules are needed to provide the same protection to email that is extended to regular, paper mail in state law. Leno said there are gaps in federal law that could allow access to emails more than 180 days old without a warrant.
