Because iWatch Marion uses global positioning technology, the system intelligently forwards information to the Howard County Police Department based on where the handheld device is physically located at any given moment.

 

The app will also work in reverse, allowing the police department to send out alerts about missing children, weather, and more. It's another example of technology being put to good use.
