SNEAK PEEK - Using Google Location Data for Investigations 

Are you investigating a homicide, rape or robbery, but have no traditional evidence available? Are you a cold case investigator and have no leads in your case? Maybe this is the time to take another look at those case files using a Google geofence warrant.
