Cop:  Citizen, we need to be able to invade your privacy.  For your safety and ours.  Surely, you don't care if we know who you call or where you go, right?  After all, you have nothing to hide.

redmid17: FTA: "The leadership of the Patrolmen's Union, which represents 170 members, had previously expressed concerns that the information the GPS devices provide would be used for officer discipline."
 
It should be used for officer discipline if the situation warrants it.


Reply should have been, "Which members are concerned that such information would be cause for discipline? We want to do their cars first."

madgonad: Theaetetus: The leadership of the Patrolmen's Union, which represents 170 members, had previously expressed concerns that the information the GPS devices provide would be used for officer discipline.
 
Union President Dennis Moriarty had said the union also did not want the data from the GPS devices stored, and would only approve the use of the devices with certain stipulations.
 
What's the problem, unless you've got something to hide?

A GPS is kind of like having an open internet connection at work. If they want to fire you for whatever reason all you have to do is

check what websites an employee has visited and there is likely to be something inappropriate. The same thing with a GPS. You can look at the data and make up your own reason to fit a pattern.
 
There's a slight difference between "went to Fark at work" or "clicked on the wrong pop-up ad" and "went to the strip club in the next town over for a three hour lunch".

There should have been no negotiation on this.  The GPS units would be installed in the cars which belong to the city, not under the skin of the police officers.
