Using Google Location Data for Investigations 

Do you have an old criminal case that was never solved, but you still think about? Do you have a current case for which no traditional evidence is available? Did one of your unsolved homicide or other violent crime cases happen at a known specific location, date, and time? Maybe this is the time to take another look at those case files using a Google geofence warrant.
