Hit and Run Perimeter Managed with TrackerX System

1024 683 Jim Zaleta

Dear Ms. Jensen,

On December 15, 2005, officers responded to a hit and run with possible injuries at the corner of Babcock Street, N.E. and Charles Boulevard, N.E. Officers were looking for the suspect’s hit-and-run vehicle and located it at Georgia Street, N.E. and Pigeon Avenue, N.E. abandoned and heavily damaged. Weapons and a ski mask were located just inside the vehicle leading the officers to believe that a burglary had recently occurred.

At this time officers set up a perimeter east of I-95, north of Malabar Road, west of Babcock Street, and south of Nebraska Street. It was during this time I started using the SafePoint TrackerX System to help keep track and verify where the officers were. Also during this time, K9 officers had responded and I was also using the SafePoint TrackerX software to verify their location.

This perimeter lasted for approximately an hour and a half, and three male suspects were taken into custody. Having the SafePoint TrackerX System was an easy way to see where all officers are located at once.

Thank you.
