I was thinking about that.....hopefully they've got something like "Find my droid".
some of those programs allow the gps to be turned on remotely, even if the phone is turned off and will show you a dot on google maps approximately where the phone is located.
I can't imagine 300 KC law enforcement people wouldn't have already thought of those kind of things though.
