Minneapolis to Install GPS in All Squad Cars, Fire Trucks, and Ambulances

February 6, 2007

MINNEAPOLIS, MN – Every squad car, fire truck, and ambulance in Minneapolis is getting a state-of-the-art GPS tracking system installed, according to the Web site www.wcco.com. Squads and other emergency personnel will be able to see exactly where their back up is and dispatchers can get them to critical situations quicker.

This program should be up and running in March. Minneapolis police also hope to eventually hook it up to another system that tracks gunshots — called shot spotter.
