Lowell Police Union to Fight Cruiser GPS Proposal

January 21, 2010

BOSTON - The City of Lowell's proposal to install GPS devices in police vehicles has been rejected by the police union, according to The Lowell Sun.

The City earlier tried to install global-positioning system devices in city cell phones supplied to Health and Inspectional Services Department inspectors, but that plan was dropped after the union, which also represents the police, objected, calling it an "intrusion".

City officials claim the proposal is just a safety measure, but employees don't want to be tracked by GPS, reported the Sun.
