Although the GPS tracking device has been used for investigations in the Nassau and Suffolk police departments, officials would not discuss the matter, refusing to even say how long it's been in use or how many GPS units the departments own.
According to [Edward Goller]'s testimony, the Nassau County Police Department owns six GPS units and has been using them for investigations for about 18 months. Goller said he and nine other detectives in his bureau are able to install the GPS, and he alone has installed 15 GPS devices for a variety of investigations. They can be retrieved in minutes.
