GPS Gang Tracking

Posted on Dec 14, 2007 By : Mizake Laziaf
Solving the murder of a young woman killed in a drive-by shooting was
made easy by the fact that one of the seven gang members involved was
wearing a GPS
bracelet issued to him by the Los Angeles Police Department. On
November 12, authorities starting tracking the movements of about
twenty paroled gang members through GPS. After a call came in for the
fatal shooting of twenty year old Nelly Vergara Hernandez, officers
checked the computer that tracks the 20 gang members and noticed that
one of the gang members was at the address at the same time as the
shooting. A police helicopter was able to use the parolee’s
GPS readings to track the SUV he was in to a location in Compton.
Police were then able to arrest all seven gang members. Los Angeles
Police Chief Bratton summed up the intelligence of the gang member by
saying, “We are not dealing with the brightest bulbs in the circuit.
This character has to be one of the stupidest people in the city of Los
Angeles.” There are plans to continue monitoring of paroled gang
members. “As parolees are either killed or arrested, then we’ll take
that bracelet and place it on another high-profile gang member,” said
Lt. Roger Mora.
