In most cases, officers usually have to physically follow or tail a vehicle for days, weeks, or months in order do record a suspect’s movements. This is no longer the case, as GPS tracking for law enforcement helps agencies attach a GPS tracking device onto a suspect’s vehicle and could even monitor their movements remotely in real time from anywhere in the world with the help of an Internet-able computer or mobile electronic device.
Police departments can devote more of their manpower and resources to other areas without the need to compromise the need for time-consuming investigative surveillance, allowing them to be more efficient in their job. GPS tracking for law enforcement can help agencies save their time, energy, and resources, giving them the technological advantage that they need in order to fight crime.
Choosing the Right Tracking System for the Job
Trackimo has passive GPS trackers that can be used to record location data. This technology, which includes routes traveled, speed, location, and even duration of stops and arrival addresses, can all be downloaded and viewed on a computer with a Google Earth application. Users can also generate printable reports that show these tracking data, which can in turn be used as evidence in court.
