My apologies for the wait.REQUEST
Now, assuming that there is surveillance on a state/federal level, the government (I am going to use that term for both state and federal) will not acknowledge it. Under federal FREEDOM OF INFORMATION and WA's Washington Public Records Act, §42.56 et seq., an ongoing surveillance for police action does not require disclosure.
Ergo, this may prove useless.SUIT
One in your situation would have to sue state/fed government. This is NOT easy. For state, you'd have to show that the state's agency/agencies breached your rights/committed a tortuous action with gross negligence. This is a hard standard
Suing the fed government is also not easy, and this would involve filing a suit in US District Court
Both of these actions would likely cost thousands and may take up to a year or more to push through the Courts. An attorney is recommended.POLICY CHANGE
This would involve contacting your local and federal representatives and asking for them to introduce a law that limits such surveillance. For federal level, see here
. For WA, see here
under "Find Your District."
