Law enforcement is concerned that the popular Waze mobile traffic app by Google, which provides real-time road conditions, can also be used to hunt and harm police. Waze is a combination of GPS navigation and social networking. Fifty million users in 200 countries turn to the free service for warnings about nearby congestion, car accidents, speed traps, traffic cameras, construction zones, potholes, stalled vehicles or unsafe weather conditions. Waze users mark police -- who are generally working in public spaces -- on maps without much distinction other than "visible" or "hidden."
