Can the police find out where I've been using the location records of my cell phone carrier?

Answer: Yes, they can, and they routinely do without having to get a search warrant.  However, the Supreme Court of the United States is now considering whether this is an unreasonable search of personal information in the digital age.  All the police now need to do to get someone's historical mobile phone location records, known as cell site location information, is to get a court order, which is easy.  The person's carrier then provides the information. The other way is to get the person's consent.
