ankle bracelet GPS

GPS tracking devices have helped many families stay safe for years. Some people feel weird about GPS tracking. However, when it comes to your family, there is no reason to feel weird. This could be the matter of life and death. From knowing your kids are safe at home after school to keeping tabs on family members. In this article, you will learn about how to keep your family safe with GPS tracking.

Keep your Children Safe

Statistics on missing children are shocking. Every 40 seconds a child will become missing or abducted in the US. That’s approximately 800,000 kids per year. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children found in a recent study that most abductions occur during the hours of 2:00 -7:00 p.m. This is usually the time frame children are coming home from school and are home alone. Even more shocking – More than 200,000 children were abducted by family members in that recent study. These statistics mean that any child is susceptible to go missing. Keep your child safe with a GPS tracking device designed to make you aware of your child’s location at all times. Give them a GPS tracking device, it can fit inconspicuously inside their backpack. There are GSM/GPS tracking safety phones you can give your kids so they can always be contacted and tracked. They also have a low battery consumption and can hold phone numbers so that the person doesn’t have to dial the number themselves.

Alzheimer’s Patients

Do you have a family member who is struggling with Alzheimer’s disease? Unfortunately, this is something many families deal with. The disease, the most common form of dementia, is gradual, unbeatable so far and ultimately fatal. It afflicts 1 in 9 people older than 65, and according to the Alzheimer’s Association, more than 6 of every 10 people with dementia will wander and some will never be found. With those statistics, I wouldn’t want to take a chance on potentially losing a family member forever, and neither should you. You can purchase a GPS tracking ankle bracelet for Alzheimer’s patients that are waterproof and even keep a log when there is no GSM signal. That way, if your family member wanders off you can still keep track of them.


Making sure your family is safe is no joking matter. Now you know about GPS tracking and how to keep your family safe. Remember that more than 6 of every 10 people who have dementia will wander off. Also, remember that every 40 seconds a child will become missing or abducted in the US and More than 200,000 children were abducted by family members. If that was your family what would you do? Act before something happens and put a plan in place. Give your family members a GPS tracking device to keep in their pocket, backpack, or wear as an ankle bracelet. You may think they won’t ever need it, and hopefully, they won’t. But if they ever do need help, they will have the GPS tracking device and be safe.

Here’s an excellent example of using GPS tracking devices to ensure the safety of the ones you love the most.  According to a recent New Jersey report, an 84-year-old woman who wandered away from home was located unharmed within 2-hours of her disappearance thanks to a GPS tracking bracelet worn on her person.   Located in a wooded area about 2-miles from home, the woman is a participant in a New Jersey program which provides free GPS trackers to at risk individuals unable to leave home alone due to medical conditions that may cause them to wander away.

TrackingTheWorld's OFT-210 Ankle Bracelet GPS Tracker

According to the LaCrosse Tribune, a newly introduced Wisconsin bill is asking for GPS tracking devices for repeat offenders of protection orders issued through Wisconsin courts.  The GPS tracking bill stems from “Cindy’s Law”, an Illinois law requiring GPS tracking of repeat violators of protective orders, which was named in tribute to a woman killed by her boyfriend three  years ago.

Since Illinois enacted the GPS tracking legislation, other states have followed suit, including Minnesota and Indiana.  If the bill passes in Wisconsin, the GPS tracking services would be funded by the offenders themselves through a $200 surcharge for every violator of a protective order.
