Police officers are to be given tracking devices so that bosses can monitor their whereabouts.

Norfolk Police said they would introduce the technology later this year to help cut response times and improve the safety of staff.

Norfolk Police Authority said the force appeared to be “leading the way” in adopting the Automatic Person Location System (APLS), which is fitted to officers’ radios.

Superintendent Stuart Gunn, of Norfolk Police, said: “Knowing the exact locations of our officers will allow us to send the nearest, most appropriate officer to emergency calls, providing a more effective deployment.
