Restraining orders - Temporary and Permanent. Without GPS with Victim notification, deadly, although very much needed when the courts fail to protect, year after year. GPS with Victim notification, enables the previously harmed to save their own life. It also saves city, county and state resources. The question becomes, why aren't attorneys demanding real-time GPS to accompany some restraining orders when for the first time, this decades olds solution is available?
(GPS can used to combat false allegations of stalking, and or alcohol issues. Reduces judicial headaches trying to ascertain which person is telling the truth. All a Judge need do is check the data.)
How it works:
In some instances a simple restraining order is simply not enough. Judges aware of this now have the ability to apply technology solutions that will save lives and the state costs. When judges determine extra protection is needed, judges can now add a GPS with a real-time Victim Notification enhancement to a restraining order they might make.
(In cases involving false allegations or stalking or alcohol abuse, savvy attorneys are recommending their clients secretly have themselves GPS'd to refute those claims. Any "tracking" device will suffice. Tracking data is what results in a temporary restraining order being dropped instead of made permanent. However, "tracking" is wholly separate from real-time monitoring. Contact us for a detailed explanation.)
GPS with Victim notification works in Family Court much like it does in criminal court; with one minor change. The GPS staffer is the first responder, calling or texting the person who asked for a restraining order in real-time, ahead of time, to alert the individual that the restrained person was about to violate the judge's court-ordered stay away distance.
The protected person could then either immediately leave the vicinity - or (should the alert warn the restrained person was outside the home of the protected person), simply not go home.
After notifying the intended victim, the GPS staffer would next contact the restrained person (the unit has a microphone for two-way communication) warning the individual they were about to violate the protective order - with the suggestion to rethink violating the order as the police would be called.
Should the restrained person opt to violate the protective order, the GPS staffer's next call is to alert law enforcement as to their exact location of the individual, and activate the siren.

As ski resorts now GPS children as part of their marketing campaigns -
"GPS little Jessica for the slopes and we'll find her faster in case of an avalanche"
it's fair to say GPS has gone mainstream.
However, GPS with a siren is a true technological crime prevention, mobile neighborhood watch, tool.
As today's newest law enforcement tool is "Predicitive Policing"
there is nothing more "predictive" than GPS with Victim Notification.
Thus, and for the very first time - today's courts are equipped to make effective protective orders.
