Boston Police indefinitely suspend license plate reader program citing privacy concerns

This article discusses the use of license plate scanners in the city of Boston and how the police department has just announced that it will suspend the use of them.  The reason this type of practices is being suspended is because of the privacy concerns by citizens of Boston.  The use of these scanners is to scan millions of license plates a year and be able to track the movements of citizens of Boston.  Do the police have the right to track us using technology such as license plate scanners?
