How Police Use Fleet Tracking Systems

Today, 69% of U.S. law enforcement agencies use GPS tracking systems. Fleet management systems are effective at helping first responders such as police officers, firefighters, and paramedics be quick and resourceful. With law enforcement GPS tracking, police are better equipped to serve the community.

Officer Safety

If an officer is injured, dispatchers can locate them quickly and send backup. GPS improves safety on many levels, from the dispatch of ambulances to the scene, to instant location of vehicles. If a criminal steals a patrol car, a GPS tracker can pinpoint exactly where this expensive piece of equipment is.

Efficiency

Police GPS tracking boosts efficiency because:

  • Dispatchers can route calls to patrol cars closest to an incident.
  • Pursuits are monitored in real time, so criminals are apprehended faster.
  • Efficiency and 24/7 monitoring also save money.

Accountability

With GPS tracking for police cruisers, fleet trackers can issue alerts when officers exceed the speed limit, drive aggressively, get into an accident, or neglect their duties.

Fleet tracking also aids communication. Dispatchers can direct, warn, and navigate patrol cars. Officers traversing unfamiliar areas can remain in direct communication and receive accurate instructions, thanks to their GPS location always being known.
