In the world today, many dangers are waiting to be unveiled. Many crimes have been recorded and it seems like the crime rate is actually increasing. This is why people should be more cautious and the Police should be more alert and attentive with the crimes reported to them. And this is the reason why all possible means of improving the services of the Police should be materialized. Moreover, for the police authority, warrantless phone tracking is one of these aids that they are happy to have.

The Obama administration agrees to the police in this matter. Phone tracking need not require warrant of arrest. However, the police need to also be sure and provide enough proof that the tracking is related to a certain crime and that it is relevant for the crime’s investigation. According to Richard Littlehale, agent in the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, having to wait for a warrant just to do mobile tracking will delay the improvement of the case. Every minute is important in solving a case. These minutes may actually be enough for suspects to change and alter possible evidences and in the end get away from the crime.

In the field of investigation, one solid example when it comes to the improvement of the case through the use of phone tacking happened in Texas. Texas Drug Enforcement Administration agents were able to track a drug shipment held in a tractor trailer. Verizon Wireless and T-mobile logs offered aid in the investigation through locating the mobile phones used in the transaction. The GPS-equipped Nextel phone is the key in the crime.

But not all are voting their yes on this issue. There is an issue with the privacy that will be violated with this proposal. Imagine always being tapped by the police. The idea seems to be scary for some people that this is still given a lot of thought.
