Is the police using phone tracking?

If you're wondering if you can be tracked via your phone, you probably need to know first how a cell phone works and how it's able to allow you to be mobile while talking. Your connectivity to the rest of the world is done through cell phone towers, as you probably know. Your phone both sends and receives signals from those towers. The signal from your phone is accessed by all the towers in your area. The one that is closest to your location will be the one that will be the intermediary for your phone calls. Since you are covered by multiple towers, your position can be triangulated and this happens even when you're not talking on your phone. In order to make sure your phone isn't tracked, you have to shut down the phone.

One of the ways that the police tracks phones is by using triangulation. Since the wireless towers that offer cell phone coverage will cover the user from different positions, by knowing the distance of the user from each tower, you know the position of the cell phone. Special software used for triangulation will estimate the position of a cell phone and that's how tracking is done. While triangulation doesn't work as well as GPS tracking, it's still a good way of knowing the general location of a cell phone and that makes it quite easy to find its owner.

Phone tracking is even easier these days, since most new smartphones have GPS chips installed, which use satellites from orbit instead of wireless towers to locate a cell phone. One example of use of GPS chips in tracking is when you're calling emergency services and you don't know where you are. The operator can determine your location by using the GPS chip on your phone and help will soon be on the way.
