Verizon Wireless' innovative Chaperone service has been launched for new handsets. The child-tracking program was previously only available on the LG Migo. Chaperone is now available on the following handsets: LG 3450L, LG VX8300, LG Chocolate and the Motorola KRZR K1m.

Chaperone uses GPS to keep tabs on kids. Parents can log in and see current location and do more advanced functions like set home zones and automated monitoring.

Chaperone costs either $9.99 or $19.99 monthly depending on the tier of service. That price is per handset (tracking multiple children means paying separate charges).
