No matter, there are multiple resources. Google Maps rarely if ever gets an address so badly wrong that it’s not on the correct side of the street — and you can print the map out. The GPS itself doubtless comes with a disclaimer that it will get any address accurate. Many municipalities require house numbers to be stenciled on the curb so that emergency responders don’t have to waste a lot of time locating the home or building at an address. Bank records will contain detailed description of the home and probably photos. Any conflict shedding doubt on the identity of the property should mean to shut the operation down. This isn’t even a SWAT operation where haste makes unavoidable error at times.

Someone will get so sued.

There seem to be a fair number of these incidents that get blamed on GPS. None of these systems are always accurate and are no substitute for common sense. In most cases an error is not a big deal but when it comes to a SWAT team raiding a home or a home demolition, I would hope that multiple confirmations would be used.
