November 20, 2013 3:26 PM

The following inforamtion is from Capt Gloede:  "As the City of Madison and the Central District continue to experience thefts, robberies and burglaries with smart phones being the target, the article and news clip show the magnitude of the issue.

Video: Inside the hidden tech battle over a smart phone "kill switch"
There's a hidden battle over stolen smart phones. Last year, more than 1.5 million Americans had their devices taken, and New York City saw a 40 percent jump in smart phone thefts. There is a solution, known in the industry as a "kill switch." But law enforcement sources told CBS News when manufacturers like Samsung made smart phones with a kill switch earlier this year, the five major wireless carriers -- AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint and US Cellular -- wouldn't support it.
