Publicly available GPS Receivers, yes they are only receivers, do not transmit your location. They receive data from the 12 Terrestrial Satellites available for public use and convert that data into the information displayed on the screen. If the Police happened to recover a GPS, they might be able to recover any information that was added by the user since the GPS was stolen to try and track the locations that it has visited.
