Hello! I am a police officer in Youngstown, Ohio. Our mayor, Charles Sammarone, recently announced that soon all city cars will be equipped with GPS trackers and I think about it as the violation of my privacy rights. Can I do something to fight back?

Yes, Charles Sammarone has strong intentions related to equipping all Youngstown city cars with GPS tracking devices until the end of this year. Along with GPS trackers time clocks will also be installed and the Youngstown mayor plans to put them in city cars until the middle of the summer. So together those systems will be used to improve the effectiveness of different services of the city.
GPS tracking systems for cars are widely used across the USA. The opinions about their usage have divided into two camps. One group of people thinks that using GPS tracking devices is great and it helps a lot in their work and they don't bothered by the fact that they are tracked all the time. Other group of people thinks that despite the usefulness of such technological innovation the privacy violation is too high and thus GPS tracking must be stopped.
As I can see you belong to the second group and sincerely willing to protect your privacy by all manner of means. So I have great news for you! You can prevent GPS tracking in your Youngstown city car and save all your privacy rights in that way.
