Thief Caught with Live Tracking Google Map

Alert & Respond

Alert & Respond is a tracking application aimed at the police and military. The application allows for the real-time tracking of the location of officers and other people and resources.

The effectiveness of the tracking function of Alert & Respond was proved during a demonstration of the product in San Francisco. An unsuspecting thief decided to snatch an Alert & Respond activated phone from one of the company's employees whilst she was demonstrating its real-time GPS tracking program.

The employee reported the phone's theft to the police and they were able to follow the criminal's location live with the help of Alert & Respond and Google Maps. The thief was subsequently captured and booked for grand theft and possession of stolen property.
