Mississippi and Alabama have given GPS tracking devices to social workers. The devices are embedded in cell phones. If a dangerous situation arises, workers can press a panic button on the phone to call for help.

Mississippi has issued GPS-equipped cell phones to 450 field workers. The phones can also be used to take photos of children and their home environments and record audio field notes that can be uploaded to the state's caseworker database.

If history were the guide, in Alabama or perhaps any other state, Ms. Harris might never have regained her children, child welfare officials here say. More likely, the children would have been shuffled among relatives and foster homes.
