In some cases I would say yes, and in some cases I would say no. If there is someone's life in danger, such as a kidnapping or someone has just hurt or killed someone and are fleeing the cops, then track it as fast as you can.

The City of Marietta is pleased to announce it is entering the testing phase to deploy the new “Smart City” Marietta TravelSafely app that will soon be available on Apple and Android devices. www.mariettaga.gov/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=1171
The Marietta TravelSafely app is designed to save lives by reducing first responder response time and making drivers, cyclists and pedestrians more visible to each other and improving traffic flow. Marietta TravelSafely currently connects first responders, school beacons, driver feedback signs, and will soon be deployed to all the city’s 120 traffic signals and anonymous smartphones using the app into a connected network. Like all smartphone apps, Marietta TravelSafely will be automatically updated with additional functions and improvements.
Drivers, cyclists and pedestrians in the City of Marietta will be the first in the United States to connect to each other with a smartphone app that provides information from traffic signals and warns of approaching first responders and alerts the driver when entering a school zone.
