GPS Tracking for Business and Personal Use
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a satellite-based navigation system made up of 24 satellites placed into orbit by the U.S. Department of Defense. These satellites circle the earth twice a day in a very precise orbit and transmit signal information to earth. Special ground receivers, GPS tracking devices, can use this information to determine the latitude, longitude, altitude, speed and bearing of the person or object being tracked. Originally intended for military use, GPS was made publicly available by the U.S. government in 1983 after Korean Air Lines Flight 007 was shot down by Soviet aircraft after straying into prohibited airspace due to navigational errors.
GPS tracking has a wide range of business and personal uses. Our private investigators use GPS tracking in situations where physically following a person or item is neither possible nor sensible. Once a GPS tracking device is set to record data at regular intervals, it will tell our investigators exactly where a person or object is, day or night.
GPS Tracking for Business Use
Businesses with large numbers of company vehicles have a substantial financial investment they naturally want to protect. While they want to trust their employees, savvy business owners know that accidents happen and that the world is not filled with honest people. Many types of businesses make use of the benefits GPS tracking can provide, including:
- Rental car companies
- Liquor distributors
- Taxi companies
- Pizza delivery restaurants
- Floral van owners
- Retirement homes with transport vans
- Trucking companies
- Delivery services
- First responders (law enforcement, firefighters, paramedics, etc…)
Employers who track their vehicles usig GPS often realize substantial increases to their bottom line. Employee productivity goes up when workers know their movements are being recorded, creating a substantial savings in costs and time.
GPS Tracking for Personal Use
Our private investigators can make use of GPS tracking devices in other places besides wayward fleet vehicles. Since GPS tracking devices are easy to install and conceal, they serve many personal uses including:
- Tracking a spouse’s vehicle usage as part of an infidelity investigation
- Tracking a teen driver’s vehicle usage
- Parents can track their child’s location and movements through a small tracking device placed in a backpack or jacket pocket
- Protect artwork and other valuables from theft using small, easily concealable tracking devices
No matter where the GPS tracker is located, our experienced, licensed private investigators can track its location as long as the tracking device remains securely in place. We can download the information, plot the locations on a map, and even indicate direction and speed of movement for devices that are in motion. For anyone who wants to make sure they know where loved ones and property are, GPS tracking is an intelligent choice. We can handle the device installation quickly and with a minimum of interruption in your day.
