Let's give our kids a chance against the sexual offenders and criminals that would do them harm
Columbia, Maryland (PRWEB) April 30, 2012
In view of the recent high profile media cases about the plight of missing children like Etan Patz, It seems appropriate to raise awareness on how GPS technology can help avoid or mitigate such terrible tragedies. "There has been a big focus on missing children in the media lately, but not much focus on solutions to the problem" says the CEO of Security Central Exchange, Mark Schober.
While there are no "silver bullet solutions" to this problem, there are technologies and products that can greatly improve the security and safety needs of parents to protect their children. God forbid they go missing, a child locator can be used to track, locate and communicate with them in real-time before any potential tragedy occurs.

On the Monday, April 23rd 2012 edition of the View, "Whoopy Goldberg" and the panel discussed how we can track our pets but can't track our children. The discussion then turned to implanting microchips into our children, similar to the practice done to animals. Well, there is a much better solution than that and it does not carry the moral, ethical and legal baggage associated with it.
The answer is simple... GPS technology. There are a variety of GPS tracing devices that can be used to locate, protect and communicate with children 24 hours a day and help keep them safe. For instance, the S911 GPS bracelet can give parents the peace of mind of knowing where their children are at any given minute. Should the child have an emergency, they merely press the SOS button and the parent is notified within 3 seconds by text, email, voice communications or all three. The technology and products are available and affordable. "Security Central Exchange was launched to help people leverage technologies that can help them protect themselves, their children and their loved ones, and there are a variety of affordable security products that do that," The CEO of Security Central Exchange stated. The video attached to this article was found on YouTube, and it serves to remind us of how many children, parents and families are affected by this problem.
The problem requires a three-fold solution that incorporates "prevention, detection and response." Prevention focuses on protecting children and keeping them safe before any potential harm can come to them. Detection, includes a monitoring solution that can not only monitor children's where abouts and activities, but those that would do them harm. The courts have not done a good enough job embracing and implementing electronic offender monitoring solutions for those convicted of child related crimes once released on probation or parole. While the national sex registry is useful, it does not give authorities the ability to monitor, locate and communicate with the offender in real-time like some of the offender monitoring solutions that are available.
The third part of prevent, detect and response is "response." These GPS devices have the response capability built-in. Whether talking about children or offenders, parents can receive almost instant email, text and voice alerts that allow them to respond, locate, protect and communicate with their child almost instantly. The same goes for law enforcement in reference to tracking, locating and communicating with offenders.
To view some of these GPS Devices go to security central exchange. This article is dedicated to the memory of Etan Patz, Caylee Anthony, and all of the children of the world that have gone missing, in hopes that future such tragedies may be prevented.
