What I need is a GPS tracking device that can be attached to The Boy.
I need one that works regardless of its distance from a phone that's associated with it (it has to be stand alone).
It needs to be ruggedized, waterproof and such.
It needs to be escape proof, in that it cannot be something like a watch that he can simply remove and ditch.
It cannot have a power button that he can actuate.
His flights from positive adult supervision have grown past the manageable level and we need some way we can locate him if he scoots on us. After the third time last week the police are really pressuring us to get something but are unable to recommend any specific device except a $500 watch thing with a $40 a month monitoring service.
Remember what I said about him just removing it? Even if we get a locking band, he might just tear the device in half.
Unlike most patients who wander off and use these devices, The Boy, has a plan and seeks to avoid being caught. There's something he wants to do while he's out and about, but cannot or will not articulate it to us.
