The FCC granted an emergency temporary waiver to telecommunication 
carriers serving Jewish Community Centers, allowing access to the 
Caller-ID (Calling Party Number Identification) normally blocked at the 
calling party's request (i.e. star-67).

Although per call Call-Trace (i.e. star-57) and permanent Trap-and-Trace 
court orders also report the Caller-ID and other call information, such 
as ANI to law enforcement; the FCC occasionally granted similar 
waivers in the past.

Obviously this doesn't help with spoofed calling numbers.
