When a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri stopped two teenagers walking in the middle of the street no one could have imagined the events that would happen next and how they would shake public opinion. Although the events are not concrete and have many shades of ambiguity, what is believed to occurred was that one of the teens who was fresh off of a store robbery violently attacked the responding police officer. Seconds after that assault on the police officer gun shots were fired and a young black teenager by the name of Michael Brown lay dead in the street. The Ferguson story has resulted in the surfacing of tensions between the black community and a predominately white law enforcement in the region and the outcome has been protests and rioting. Although tensions have simmered down as time has passed, a Grand Jury verdict on whether or not the officer involved in the case, Darren Wilson, should be convicted of a crime could spark more violence and unrest. This is why just ahead of the Grand Jury ruling the National Guard has been called and in all likelihood call upon the use of GPS tracking systems to assist in keeping the peace.
Police enforcement commonly use technology to assist them in both fighting crime and keeping the peace. Many of these tools such as bulletproof vests, weaponry and spy cameras are familiar to citizens but what many people may not know is that GPS vehicle tracking systems are also frequently used by the men in blue. Real-time GPS monitoring can be utilized in two different fashions among police: internal fleet tracking of squad cars and as a mechanism to oversee activity of vehicles operated by known felons.
GPS devices are helpful for fleet tracking because it allows operations managers the ability to see where every vehicle in their fleet is located. This helps reduce arrival times for police, getting them to the scene of a crime in the shortest time possible which in many cases can be life-saving. Vehicle management of squad cars is a fantastic use of GPS satellite technology but another way that GPS tracker systems are providing assistance to police is through vehicle surveillance. This is because when a passive or live GPS is equipped on the vehicle of a felon, suspected criminal or other possible threat, police can see exactly what that individual is doing. This can give police a leg up on criminal activity which is vital in areas where bad things can occur such as the situation brewing in Ferguson, Missouri.Last Updated on Tuesday, 18 November 2014 22:33
Pharmaceutical companies provide a valuable service to Americans all across the nation. The brains behind pharmaceutical businesses are what provide us with antibiotics when we are sick, pain relief when we are hurt and medication that can literally extend or in many cases save our lives. And let's not forget about the other pharmaceutical medications that can improve muscle function, hair growth or even improve our sex life. There is no denying that the pharmaceutical industry has been helpful in almost everyone's life but with some medications having so much value many pharmacies and their delivery vehicles are now being targeted by thieves. Theft is becoming a huge problem for pharmacies all across the country and now the reason why pharmacies are taking action with GPS tracking system technology.
Theft is a problem in most industries but has been significantly problematic for pharmacies transporting pharmaceuticals. For example, recently a driver simply trying to deliver pharmaceuticals to a pharmacy located in a suburb of Detroit had a gun pointed to his head, was then tied up and taken for a ride. The terrified driver had a bag placed over his head where he was dropped off at a vacant lot, still tied up. The thieves stole all of the cargo in the pharmacy truck then torched the vehicle to ashes. The investigation concluded that the entire event was based on the robbers wanting pharmaceutical pills such as OxyContin, Vicodin and other pain management medication abuse that has been increasingly popular on the streets. The statistics are getting worse as prescription drugs are becoming the drug of choice of many teens and adults. In fact, in the state of Maine from 2009-2013 there were approximately 175,000 incidents of theft related to pharmaceuticals with approximately 40% being strong armed robbery.
GPS tracking is now commonplace in many industries, especially those where vehicle management can help enhance productivity and safety. GPS vehicle locator technology is a rather simple concept involving 3 steps:
1. GPS tracker is placed on company vehicle
2. Tracker reports live GPS tracking data
3. User can view real-time GPS tracking data 24/7
This fleet tracking technology is often used to record mileage driven by employees, determine if a company driver is misusing company equipment or simply a way to enhance automotive security in an effort to prevent theft. However, the locational technology is also proving to be a valuable asset among pharmaceutical companies seeking a way to help them keep cargo, vehicles and drivers safe.Last Updated on Tuesday, 04 November 2014 20:23
Tow truck businesses, construction operations and numerous companies with service vehicles are always investigating the best solutions to assist with enhancing business efficiency. This is the reason why so many companies are opting to invest in real-time GPS trackers to help with vehicle a management of trucks and other mobile assets. What the majority of these types of businesses are seeking is a vehicle monitoring solution that will allow them to track a truck or vehicle with the use of a cell phone. Essentially, live GPS tracking data that can be acquired and viewed whenever there is a need. Businesses are now finding this mobile tracking solution with GPS monitoring devices that provide live locational based data and they are getting this valuable fleet and vehicle management service for less than a dollar a day!
GPS tracking technology has continued to evolve to the point where data is more accurate, online mapping interfaces are more user-friendly to businesses and reporting features are detailed enough to meet the needs of any company concerned with fleet management activity. This is because GPS tracking companies are now keenly aware that businesses in need of vehicle management tools require the 5 following things:
1. GPS Trackers That Can Be Portable Or Direct Connected
2. Various Online Reports Documenting Mileage, Speeding & Address Data
3. Mobile Access To GPS Tracking Data
4. Access To Historical Locational Data & Live Vehicle Activity
5. Customer Service Support 24/7 & Lifetime Access To Historical Driving Activity
"What we discovered from working with a significant number of companies all across the globe is that GPS vehicle tracker data must be accessible, easily digestible and very, very reliable", expressed a auto tracking specialist for Tracking System Direct. "These businesses with cars and trucks also demand that this information can be retrieved with the use of a mobile communication device because in today's world people no longer work specifically in a office setting."Last Updated on Tuesday, 28 October 2014 19:01
Every year across America motorcyclists will throw on their leather jackets and hit the open road for charity. Some riders will get on their bikes and travel for organizations such as the Wounded Warrior Project, or other charities that support Autism awareness, cancer research or heart disease prevention. Raising money for charitable organizations is always a noble cause and riding a motorcycle to contribute to that effort is something many motorcycle riders enjoy being a part of. In fact, many of these charitable campaigns are not only using automotive technology to get from point A to point B but also social media. Facebook, twitter and microblogs are spreading the word about these motorcycle rides for good and helping them better connect with their audience with the help of GPS vehicle tracker systems.
Social networking is now commonplace in the United States and with over 150 million active Facebook users in the US and Canada alone it is likely to going to be one of the ways people connect with one another moving forward (Facebook has over one billion users worldwide). Whether the choice is Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus or any of the other trendy social networks there is no denying that people are actively calling upon digital devices and mobile technology to connect with one another and this is where GPS tracking can play a unique role. See when a GPS device is connected to a person, automobile or asset it has the ability to provide real-time updates on the locations of those items. This real-time tracking data is not only accurate and beneficial for a number of different applications such as teen safety, senior care and vehicle management, but it can also provide a way for charity motorcycle runs to expand their reach and connection.
When a motorcycle rider opts to put a GPS vehicle tracker system on their bike they have the ability to not only locate that vehicle 24/7 but also the ability to share that tracking data. This combination is actually quite significant because with the use of a motorcycle GPS system the motorcycle rider can not only protect their property from theft but share their travels on social networks to enhance awareness for their cause. "Motorcycle riders and charities that involve lengthy motorcycle rides frequently contact us regarding real-time monitoring solutions and they are always pleased to hear that we have a system in place that allows them to share tracking data with the simple copy and paste of some HTML code", explained a sales associate for Tracking System Direct. "With this easy to generate HTML code the charity can post on their website, blog or social networking channels where motorcycle riders are located. Real-time GPS technology is a really cool way to engage the audience and tool to maximize viewership."
The majority of motorcycle charity events last anywhere from a day or upwards of a week. That means the motorcycle riders or event organizers usually seek live GPS systems that are both portable and that do not require any lengthy subscription fees (real-time GPS devices send data and therefore require a monthly service obligation and occasionally an annual contract). This is the reason one of the most popular live trackers is a device called Tag. What makes Tag the GPS tracker called upon is that the device is small (roughly the size of a pack of chewing gum), affordable ($199.00) and does not require any annual commitments for real-time service. All the motorcycle rider would have to pay is the hardware cost and the monthly fees for data which run as low as $1 a day.Last Updated on Friday, 10 October 2014 03:54
Sadly, there is no way to hide the statistics when it comes to the prison population in the United States. According to one set of data gathered in 2009, it is said that for every 100,000 people in the U.S. population that 743 out of that sample size were or spent time in some form of jail or prison whether that be at the state or federal level. Although there is a lot of information and reports circulating to suggest that having a large prison population is in fact good business, let's pretend that we live in a world where we want to reduce the prison population. That we want to reduce the costs associated with maintaining that population. Clearly, there are a lot of complexities and no singular model that will remedy the over crowded jail population situation, but one piece of technology that could be as close to a singular solution as possible is the personal GPS tracking system.
Real-time GPS monitoring involves data obtained from a network of satellites orbiting the sky, a GPS receiver, cellular communication and online mapping program. That may sound pretty complicated but the application is actually rather quite user-friendly. Basically, a GPS receiver is able to determine locational data by absorbing GPS signals from satellites. This locational information includes time, date, altitude, orientation, direction and more. The GPS receiver then works with a gadget called a cellular data module that provides the mechanism to transmit the data on the GPS receiver across cellular networks. The transmitted locational data is sent to computer servers where it is integrated with mapping software where a person can literally view the data in real-time. The GPS data is formatted into a digestible version that can help a person determine the location of a vehicle, asset or individual within a couple feet! The coolest part is this GPS locational data can be viewed from a iPhone, galaxy or any cell phone with Internet connection.
Currently, a number of people convicted of crimes are able to select GPS monitoring as a alternative to time in jail. But what if in a effort to reduce the overall jail population criminals convicted of non-violent crimes were given the choice between jail or GPS? This means those arrested for drug charges and things of that nature could opt to stay outside prison walls to serve their punishment via house arrest. It is probably a safe bet to say that the significant majority would opt for the GPS personal tracking. So how would this process work and would it be effective ?
GPS bracelets have been employed for some time with success in monitoring criminals. Basically how the process works is that the person who was convicted of a crime wears a real-time GPS monitoring system. The tracking data is the monitored off-site where both the real-time and historical tracking information can be viewed 24/7. The real-time GPS monitoring systems are even designed to provide security alerts to notify authorities if a criminals under GPS monitoring leaves the home, city, state or country! In fact, the GPS monitoring system programs have already been found to be helpful in situations regarding domestic violence and sexual assault. This evidence can be found in the number of different independent research programs that have investigated the effectiveness of GPS as a deterrent.Last Updated on Tuesday, 30 September 2014 04:12
