In the first six month of 2017, Verizon has received a total of 138,773 requests — subpoenas, orders, warrants and emergency requests — versus 129,249 demands in the second half of 2016, the reports revealed.
"The vast majority of these various types of demands relate to our consumer customers; we receive relatively few demands regarding our enterprise customers," the report said. "We do not release customer information unless authorized by law."
In the past six months, Verizon has received 10,674 warrants and 32,337 court orders signed by a judge.
The number of warrants in the second half of 2016 were slightly lower, while wiretap and trap and trace orders increased in 2017, the report said.
To obtain a warrant, police must prove the information sought could be related to a crime, the report added.
