A home builder in Springfield, Missouri, decided to take catching construction equipment thieves into his own hands recently, investing in GPS tracking devices for all of his equipment and, eventually, helping the police. Would you invest in similar practices to protect your own equipment?

Whether or not I'd go this route depends on the local legalities of it and size of the equipment. But, I can see that if several companies started doing it, once word got out to the local theft rings, it might quiet things down a bit.
