Two West Australian police officers have pleaded not guilty to charges of unlawfully using a tracking device to monitor the movements of one of their partners. It was alleged the men installed a Global Positioning System (GPS) on a car belonging to the partner of one of them, to monitor the woman’s movements while the men were away on holidays in the north of the state in 2012.
It was further alleged that the men used data from the GPS to generate a detailed report of the woman’s movements over a 16-day period. Source: ABC News
