Hidden Tracking Devices
So does anyone wonder why the employees of Dallas Independent School District not trust the head brass? Well here is one reason, case in point. On Wednesday 12/01/10 between the hours of 4:00 PM and Thursday 12/02/10 7:00 AM a GPS Tracking Device was installed on a district maintenance vehicle without the drivers knowledge. This driver was singled out for some unknown reason we may find out later on, but for now it is not clear. A check of other maintenance vehicles did not turn up these devices. Tracking Device is clearly visible since it is mounted on the windshield inside by the inspection sticker. This device is small enough that it could be overlooked if other items are sitting on the dash.
This poses several questions of how did this device become installed in the district vehicle, who knew about it and who supplied the vehicle key without the drivers knowledge. Don't get me wrong I am in favor of knowing where my vehicles are if I am in business but to install a device and not tell the driver is just plain wrong.
Now the answers to the questions, who knew are who authorized this covert operation. Well too start the Executive Director of Maintenance with the initials J.F. would be one, the other Director of Maintenance with the initials P.G. another. How were keys to the vehicle obtained, through the District's Fleet Maintenance Department.
Others I am sure are involved but these person's have not come to light during this post, but as they do you will read about it here.
Have a good evening.
[Ed Note: Well, technically, they can legally do whatever they want as long as they own the vehicle. As a taxpayer and someone who snoops around at DISD, I wish they had GPS tracking devices in all District vehicles! But I agree with you: they should give people the "heads up" and not be sneaky about it.]
