Alexandria, Virginia is probably not the first place most people think of when they think of a town offering fresh Indonesian cuisine but SataY Sarinah changed all that with eclectic authentic Indonesian dishes and recipes. As business continued to grow, SataY Sarinah owner Sonny Setiantoko decided to expand his business by investing in a food truck. With the new food truck, SataY Sarinah' business began to grow and reach a larger customer base for over three years. That is until the company food truck itself became appetizing among thieves and was stolen.
One of the first things the owner at SataY Sarinah stated was he didn't really believe his food truck would be a target for thieves because the truck was big and bright red, sticking out much like a sore thumb on any roadways. He believed that the only thing about the food truck that would seem appetizing to thieves would have been probably the generator used to power the kitchen equipment. He never actually thought the food truck itself could be targeted. Although Sonny is hopeful the stolen food truck will resurface the reality is that the food truck was not equipped with any form of security GPS system and therefore with each passing day it is unlikely to show up.
Alexandria Police investigating the food truck theft stated that a GPS auto tracking solution could have helped SataY Sarinah recover the stolen vehicle. This is because live GPS monitoring solutions not only can provide real-time locational data on where a food truck is at but can also notify a business the moment their food truck is moved without consent or authorization. In fact, police authorities said that the SataY Sarinah food truck theft was the second food truck theft in the area in the past 90 days. And although food truck theft is not overly common, police did suggest food truck companies should take the initiative to increase automotive security by investing in things like GPS vehicle tracking technology.
Currently, police in Alexandria are still asking for help from the public to see if anyone has any details about the stolen food truck. Any tips or information that can lead to the recovery of the stolen food truck would be greatly appreciated and can be sent directly to Alexandria Police.Last Updated on Thursday, 19 March 2015 05:01
Cameras are used for a wide variety of monitoring applications to enhance safety, but they can also provide critical data for authorities investigating criminal activity. This is exactly what happened when police in Woodland Hills, California got a tip that a man was tampering with the odometer readings in some vehicles in order to save people money on their auto leases. Unfortunately, the lucrative task was also an illegal one and investigators were able to make an arrest based on information they gathered from a hidden camera system.
Jeffrey Levy was a man in his 60s who worked as a sales associate for a car dealership. What he is accused of doing is rolling back the odometer readings on vehicles for as much as $400 per client in a scheme that allowed people leasing vehicles to avoid paying penalties for driving vehicles too much. This process not only defrauded the dealership owners and future car owners but also lead to falsified trade-in values. Authorities stated that this scheme was going on for roughly three years.
The U.S. Justice Department is on record that engaging in odometer tampering can result in over 1,000 days of jail time and 7 figure fines. Thankfully for Levy, the prosecutors in the case are seeking a penalty less severe: a maximum of two years in jail with restitution payments of approximately $115,000. The penalties would also include prohibiting Levy from holding any future positions related to vehicle leasing, sales, finance or purchase during a pre-set supervised release.
Levy has already pleaded guilty to prosecutors to the charge of conspiracy to commit odometer tampering.
Levy would refer friends and customers about his services and charge these people anywhere between $100-$400 to tamper with the vehicle odometer readings. The people leasing the vehicles would take their automobiles to Levy's Woodland Hills residence where electronic tools were utilized to rollback odometer readings. After the odometer changes were finalized the people would then take the vehicles to the car dealership Levy worked at. Levy would accept the vehicles with falsified odometer readings for trade-ins or lease returns. Essentially, Levy was engaging in a practice that was defrauding the dealership he worked at as well as future owners of the vehicles where odometers were tampered with.
An attorney for the prosecution explained that odometer fraud can not only cost victims large sums of money but it also has the potential to result in unreliable and potentially dangerous transportation.

GPS monitoring technology is around us every day. It assists businesses in locating work vehicles, helps travelers get from one place to another accurately and can even help those looking to shed a few pounds reach their fitness goals. The dual technologies of cellular and satellite have truly made the world smaller, but what is even more incredible is that GPS monitoring is also providing significant benefits to seniors and those worried about senior safety.
Senior safety is a growing concern for millions of Americans and their families, and with a post World War 2 baby boomer generation moving into their golden years those numbers are continuing to rise every year. The most common worry for families is in regards to senior loved ones with diminishing cognitive capabilities. Specifically, those suffering with degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's. What these seniors face is a number of challenges from something as simple as forgetting where the house keys are located to much bigger issues such as wandering. In fact, everyday news stories from across the country highlight the dangers of wandering seniors. Unfortunately, these stories tend not to have happy endings because when a senior wanders away from an area they are familiar with they can put themselves in harm's way. This is the reason why doctors, health care facilities and modern families are calling upon GPS tracking systems to provide additional senior safety.
The basic concept of a personal GPS tracking device is to provide a solution for locating a person in order to maintain their safety. Common GPS monitoring applications people might be more familiar with are those related to tracking children or helping parents oversee teen driving. However, the use of GPS tracking systems to monitor the activity of elderly persons are not only growing but proving to be life-saving. Senior GPS monitoring works in a simple three step process:
1. Senior wears medical watch with GPS monitoring
2. Medical GPS watch sends out live locational data to server for remote access
3. Families, caregivers, police or doctors can access real-time GPS data to locate any potentially senior who is wandering
"There is nothing more frightening than when a senior loved one wanders out at night, police are called and hours pass by as a family anxiously awaits to be notified if that senior is safe", explained a GPS monitoring specialist for a Southern California security product company. "Medical GPS watches for seniors are really proving to be extremely valuable in those types of situations because not only can family members access the location of a senior at anytime they please but they can also create safety zones to be alerted the moment a elderly person with cognitive challenges wanders off".
Medical GPS watches require special programming, engineering, service for data, locking mechanisms and more. Basically, the products are pretty sophisticated so that means the cost of a GPS medical watch is not cheap! Shoppers can expect to pay around $699 for the hardware and a full year of real-time monitoring service for a good medical GPS watch. However, there are other solutions available such as personal trackers that can be kept in the pocket and paid on a month-to-month basis for live tracking service. But these devices are only portable and cannot be fastened around the wrist like a Medical GPS watch.Last Updated on Monday, 16 March 2015 00:49
When I was younger I never understood why my parents spent so much time worrying about me. In fact, I was probably more annoyed by the way they would ask me a million questions about my day at school, call my friend's parents and basically micromanage my life. It felt like they did not trust me to do anything or go anywhere alone. As I became older it became more clear that the reason they asked so many questions about my daily life was simply that they cared for me. Now, as a parent myself to a 9-month-old baby, I am experiencing firsthand the real stress associated with loving someone so much that it makes you sometimes feel almost unnecessary worry. It starts the moment they are born. Increases the first drive home from the hospital to home. Spikes when the baby begins to sleep in her own room in her own crib for the first time. Yes the stress feels so real you can taste it, and I imagine that never goes away for a parent. That is why I was intrigued when I heard more and more parents were using personal tracking devices that use GPS technology to monitor their kids as they walk to and from school by placing the GPS monitoring system in a child's backpack.
Live GPS monitoring technology has been around now for nearly two decades and continues to grow in terms of applications from teen driving safety to business vehicle management. Satellites orbiting the Earth from outer space send low level radio signals to the surface of the planet where they are then acquired by GPS receivers. Through this connection locational data such as speed, altitude, acceleration and more are calculated in precise detail. The data housed on the GPS receiver then transmits the data to off-site computer servers where it can be superimposed over satellite images programs such as Google Maps and also be accessed remotely by a user. This technology has been instrumental in helping the military accurately strike a target, motorists navigate from point A to Point B more quickly, businesses effectively manage company vehicles and now parents keep a more watchful eye on their kids.

GPS technology has continued to evolve with trackers becoming more reliable and the online interfaces that showcase live GPS data becoming more user-friendly to those with even little computer expertise. This has resulted in a boom in child tracking solutions designed specifically to help parents monitor their kids 24/7, and one of the most popular child GPS monitoring is a device known as SilverCloud Tag Personal GPS. What the Tag Personal GPS offers is a compact housing that makes it easy for any child to keep the tracker in their pocket or backpack. With the GPS monitoring system in the child's pocket or backpack parents can then go online from a smart phone or computer to see where their child is at whenever the parent feels the desire to do so. The Tag Personal GPS also comes with a safe zone feature to alert parents through an email or text message if their child has exited that safe zone. This feature is very helpful for parents who want to know when their child left school, an amusement park or any event that could be going on. The reality is that kids can get lost at a place as simple as a grocery store and some kids are not responsible enough to have cell phones. GPS personal monitoring systems give parents the assurance they want and need, but most importantly are cost-effective in price ($1 a day for tracking service).
As a parent, I hope that the worry I feel over my child's safety will become reduced as they get older but that is highly doubtful. I believe in a proactive parental approach and avoiding potential dangers before they become present so I personally plan to learn more and likely invest in a child GPS tracker once my daughter begins walking and leaving the house on her own.
How do you feel about GPS technology systems used to help parents keep track of their kids?
