ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Public safety workers keep an eye out on you. Now, someone is watching them as well.

Vehicle locators are now on all fire and police vehicles in the city of Albany. Tuesday, public safety workers trained on the software program that monitors those vehicles.

In the 911 center, you can see how they can now track which vehicles are where.  Fire Chief James Carswell said, "When it's completely operational, I think it's going to save response times to emergencies in the city. Looking at all the things it will do from a management decision it will make us more efficient in our management of resources, so I'm really excited about it."

The vehicles can be monitored from the 911 center and from the offices of the fire and police chiefs.
