When you are serious about prosecuting an offender, Call Trace lets you automatically trace an obscene or threatening phone call and delivers the number to local law enforcement. If the caller has violated South Dakota Codified Law 49-31-31 and you decide to prosecute, the police may use the trace as evidence. Note: Every time you complete a Call Trace, you will be charged, whether or not you follow up with authorities. The traced number will be delivered ONLY to law enforcement.

• To discontinue the trace, hang up.
