With federal and state funding dwindling for many municipalities throughout the country, local Governments
are looking for ways to reduce spending. Some are forced to cut Law Enforcement patrol activities due to the constantly rising cost of fuel, and even layoff personnel. Still, some others have found a way to work more efficiently. GPS tracking systems can be an effective way of gaining control of wasted funds. The Cities, Towns and Villages that use GPS devices to track their vehicles have seen as much as 30% reduction in fuel consumption and approximately 22%
reduction in maintenance expenses. Naturally this translates to a substantial savings. Consider the following examples of how GPS tracking devices can help your municipality establish more efficient operations:
Using GPS on emergency vehicles allows more effective dispatching. By sending the nearest vehicle, agencies reduce fuel consumption, decrease total miles driven and improve response times. · Employees that drive county or city vehicles (such as water, maintenance, parks, etc.) that are equipped with GPS are less likely to use the vehicles for personal use; this also reduces mileage, maintenance and fuel consumption.
Employees are driving at slower speeds, reducing fuel consumption and requiring less maintenance. Several insurance companies are offering discounts for using GPS tracking devices.
Some of the other ways municipalities benefit from GPS tracking are:
· Manage your field personnel actively
· Reduce downtime of field employees
· Document actual routes driven and stops made
· Improve vehicle utilization
· Eliminate or reduce overtime
· Reduce time spent at unauthorized locations
· Eliminate employee fraud
True Tracker Pro's 6.0 is a multi use tracking device. In addition to tracking vehicles, the 6.0 is a Personal Tracking Device. Its design and size make it perfect for tracking people. This is a huge benefit to Law Enforcement Officers and Firefighters. For the first time, First Responders can be tracked outside of their vehicles. In the past, dispatchers could track vehicle movement. If an Officer was outside the vehicle, in a foot chase, on bike patrol, foot patrol, etc., or firefighters fighting wildfires or large building fires, dispatchers had no way to track their location. With the 6.0 from True Tracker Pro, First Responders can be tracked in real time in and out of their vehicle. The 6.0 is equipped with an emergency SOS button that, if pressed, will send an emergency alert via text message and or email to three recipients (preset by the user). In the case of First Responders, dispatchers can be alerted to a potentially dangerous situation without requiring the officer to use the radio to request assistance. The message is repeated every two minutes for forty minutes, updating the current location. The recipients can view the location via the True Tracker Pro website.

The True Tracker Pro GPS tracking device is small, lightweight and durable, weighing only 3 ounces.
A key feature of the True Tracker Pro personal tracking devices is the website control panel. Through this password protected user interface, you can locate the device(s). Through the mapping software, users can see street address detail for the location of the device, or zoom out to get a wide-angle or bird's eye view of the device's location. Users can define a territory, known as a Geofence or Safety Zone, in which the device can travel freely but when the device travels outside of the Geofenced territory, an alert is immediately sent to a cell phone or email designated by the user. The user can locate the device through the online web panel, or use the cell phone option (must have internet capabilities). The SOS interface allows for multiple notifications.
