GPS, or the Global Positioning System, works by having a device send signals to satellites, which in turn use these signals to pinpoint the device’s geographic location. The GPS first came into practice in the 1960’s and was used by the military to track submarines. Today the use of GPS tracking is widespread. It is used for all types of things, from tracking large sharks in the ocean to tracing shopping carts to gauge customers’ shopping habits. Security and surveillance has also benefited from GPS. Police and private investigators have started utilizing the potential of GPS to solve cases and prevent crimes. The truth is, everyone can benefit from GPS tracking. Here are five examples of how your life can improve with the capabilities of GPS.

Being human comes with the inevitability that unexpected issues are going to arise. We get blindsided by unpleasant events which need to be addressed, but we aren’t sure how to address them.

However, sometimes we may not want to get those who are closest to us involved in our issues. They may be too private or we may want to get more information about our situation before we come to a definite conclusion. Whatever our reasons may be, we may still need help. A different kind of help; a private investigator kind of help.
A process server is the person designated to deliver legal documents to people. The documents can vary. The summons and complaint, often delivered together, command someone to appear in court due to a legal action against them and can involve probate, landlord-tenant disputes, juvenile situations, wage garnishment, etc. A subpoena, on the other hand, commands someone to court in order to give testimony or produce evidence. Restraining orders command a person not to go near or be involved with the subject of the order. Often, sheriff’s deputies deliver these documents. The other option is to use a paid process server which has many advantages.
