Re: doesn't stop anyone

Although more than 98% of 911 call centers - including major metro areas- do NOT have GPS tracking on cell phones. They can see your number but not your location. To obtain that location would take time and some man work with the phone companies. And then you don't even get an address, you get an "area" off the cell tower.

Definitely gonna need a citation on that.

For Instance last report I saw for GA stated all but 3 counties has E911 Phase 2 , And now 1 of of those has been upgraded since then.

1 requirement of E911 Phase 2
"Wireless network operators must provide the latitude and longitude of callers within 300 meters, within six minutes of a request by a PSAP. Accuracy rates must meet FCC standards on average within any given participating PSAP service area by September 11, 2012"
