As promised, Verizon has released a tally of the requests it receives from law enforcement at all levels, counting a total of 321,545 requests for customer subscription information, phone numbers, or content like text messages and emails. These requests are split between court orders, warrants, and emergency requests, each of which dictates how much personal information Verizon will release. What the report cant include is information on most national security orders issued by the NSA or other intelligence agencies — including the one that compels Verizon to turn over all phone records for storage in a government database. Verizon says that more than half of that number request only the name and address behind an IP address or phone number.
