For months, vehicles, tools and landscaping equipment continued to go missing in the city of Chicago. The Chicago Police Department worked tirelessly to crack the case, but the suspect continued to elude officers. On October 24, the department got a major break in the case when a victimized citizen called in to report he had been targeted for burglary. Chicago police were able to follow GPS tracking information straight to stolen goods.

The victim, whose vehicle had been stolen, told police officers that he used a GPS tracking device in his car. The empowered victim told the officers that he was able to turn on the device.

He followed the GPS tracker directly to his car at a specific warehouse on the West Side of the city. Police immediately responded to the tip. When they arrived on scene, they noticed several stolen cars. The department promptly requested a search warrant for the warehouse.

With rare bipartisan support, Kevin and Avonte’s Law was introduced in November of 2017. Named for two children with Autism who died by drowning, Kevin Curtis Wills, who died in 2008 at the age of nine in Jefferson, Iowa; and Avonte Oquendo who was a high school student who drowned in the East River in New York in 2014. Both boys had been diagnosed with autism and drowned after wandering away from supervised settings.

The bill passed the Senate by voice vote and provides nearly two million dollars in funding to train law enforcement, schools, families, and community organizations on ways they can prevent and address wandering among people who have developmental disabilities and conditions, like Alzheimer’s disease, in which wandering is common. It was passed as part of the Omnibus Spending Act of 2018 and the legislation itself can be found on page 1937.

Led by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman, Chuck Grassley (R) of Iowa the bill was also sponsored by Senator Amy Klobuchar (D) of Minnesota, Senator Thom Tillis (R) of North Carolina, and Senator Chuck Schumer (D) of New York and signed into law by President Trump.
