Chaperone Your Kids via Verizon

Verizon's existing market is obviously not wide enough for them. They have tapped into their existing resources to recruit and embrace their new wave of clientele--the teenies. I profess that in about a year from now, we'll see oodles of children (about 8?) walking around permanently attached to their cell phones.

Although a great toy for the kids (shouldn't they be devoting their time to schooling?), the Chaperone lets a curious parent check on their child's location for $10/month, and for $20, Verizon can send alerts when the child crosses pre-set boundaries. But, what happens after that? Do you alert some kind of police service or what?
