The police have a right to investigate you and your family if it has a reasonable basis to conclude that your family may be involved in criminal activity. Depending on what information it discloses, that too is lawful. But it may not use wiretaps and hidden videos, etc., without a warrant issued by a judge, and that requires probable cause ... i.e., a reasonable suspicion that there is criminal activity. A reasonable suspicion is more than simply a hunch or a guess. There must be some kind of evidence suggesting criminal activity.
If there is no probable cause, and no reasonable basis for the investigation, then the police have no right to investigate you, and certainly no right to use wiretaps, etc. You would have the basis for a civil rights
claims against the police department. Further, if the police department releases private information about you, then that could subject the individual officers to claims of invasion of privacy.
So, the botXXXXX XXXXXne is that you may have a basis for a lawsuit, but it depends on whether the police are justified in their investigation based upon what I wrote above. Of course, whether or not you would win a lawsuit also depends on your evidence.
