Waze poses a security risk for police officers, law enforcement says

The GPS-enabled mobile traffic application Waze is being called out by law enforcement officials across the U.S. who say the app helps users track police officers in real-time, which could lead to a higher risk of violent crime. Officers are asking Google to disable the tracking feature as the owner of the app, but Waze spokeswoman Julie Mossler said, “These relationships keep citizens safe, promote faster emergency response and help alleviate traffic congestion.”
