Mobile phone tracking

Mobile phones can easily be tracked giving security forces an extra tool in the fight against kidnappers.

Kidnappers use mobile phones to contact the families of kidnapped persons for ransom, and have to reach an agreement with the families for the collection of the ransom. The Special anti-kidnap squad and other security forces can work with the telephone companies to identify the location of kidnappers calling to negotiate for ransom by using the global positioning system technology (GPS) to track and identify the location of the kidnappers. Such tracking methods would make it possible for the security forces to surround the location and apprehend the kidnappers.
