The Security Officer of my Bank has been reading the Wall Street Journal article and has asked me to locate as much information as possible about electronic tracking devices and decoy currency packages. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks so much.

The primary vendor for tracking devices in our area, the Pacific NW, is ETS, which is a division of Spectrum Management. They would be able to provide you with specifications for their product and tell you if your local law enforcement agency participates in their program. (If they don't the tracking devices are moot.)
Here is a weblink for Spectrum/ETS

For dye packs there are two vendors, 3SI and US Currency. We use 3SI. Here is a weblink to their site.

I would also talk with your local FBI bank robbery coordinator to get their recommendation for your area.

There are several vendors for dye packs, but if you are looking for the RAT packs - (radio activated tracking) you will want to make sure that your local police department can assist in the tracking - if they do not have the receivers, you are wasting your money. My suggestion is that your first call be to your local police contact.
My comments are absolutely no reflection of, nor influenced by, my employer - take them at your own risk.

The Oklahoma Bank Robbery Impact Group (BRIG for short) has been researching various robbery deterrence/solution products, including ETS. US Currency Protection is now marketing a GPS based system that does not require any commitment from law enforcement or other financial institutions. I'll know more after they present their product to us in October. Feel free to contact Phil Grimm at US Currency Protection at 1-800-228-9024 ext. 121.

If you're interested in GPS technology, another resource is Global Pursuit Systems out of Scottsdale, AZ (480) 837-3773.
I've seen a live demonstration and it is very impressive.
