GPS - Truth or BS?
From our letters:
- It has been learned that the new ICLEAR PDTs in the patrol vehicles have a GPS (24hrs a day) that track you & a recording device that records audio in the vehicle- now no none knows if it is activated when the siren & lights is turned on or just when the computer is turned on. This is very important info that the troops should know about, could you start a topic thread on this? A cop in 025- [name removed - SCC] already got nabbed on a CR for the GPS.......I think it should be a important thread. Thanks
Who has some definitive answers about this? We wrote months ago that the CTA, Park District, Streets and San and Fire Department already use GPS for their vehicles. It's only a matter of time until the Police Department follows suit - everything is accountability and putting police "on the hot spots" as quickly as possible. We heard some cars in certain districts are already getting "trackers" - can anyone confirm or debunk?
