Windsor Police will soon have new GPS-enabled alarms to help protect victims of domestic violence.

With a grant for $7,267, made possible from property forfeited under the Civil Remedies Act, Windsor Police will acquire a GPS alarm system which high-risk victims of domestic violence can use to alert police to their location when they feel threatened.

The alarm, which is the size of a small pager, is integrated with Google maps so that police dispatchers can direct officers to the victim’s location.

“We are grateful for the funding provided through the Civil Remedies Grants Program. This tool provides an alternative that allows victims to leave their residences so they no longer feel like prisoners in their own homes.” said Chief Albert Frederick of Windsor Police.
