The GPS Offender Tracking program is an alternative to incarceration. It enables the offender to serve all or part of said sentence at his or her residence as well as provide for his or her family.
While participating in the program, the offender may be allowed to leave his residence to continue employment, education, and participate in treatment or life skills programs. While in the GPS Offender Tracking program, the offender is under highly-detailed monitored control and subject to disciplinary actions.
“Inclusion Zones” are accurately pinpointed locations in which the offender is allowed access to (home, work, church, etc.) and “Exclusion Zones” are any locations that have been deemed off limits to the offender.
Offenders are monitored by an ankle bracelet equipped with a state of the art global position satellite (GPS) monitor. The ankle bracelet monitors the offender's position even when he/she is outside of the satellite range. Upon entrance to the program, offenders are assigned a caseworker that helps him or her develop a weekly schedule.
The offender is held accountable for following the mandated schedule and other conditions of release as stipulated by the court or the program caseworker. The offender’s inability to abide by program requirements will result in his termination from the program.
All offenders are required to participate in weekly drug screenings which is also covered in the program cost.
This technology is also excellent for domestic violence instances…
The Domestic Violence Proximity Notification System is designed to alert victims while helping to deter offenders from repeating domestic violence offenses. The system, which utilizes GPS Tracking, RF and cellular communication technologies, creates a virtual safe zone around victims and supports the enforcement of restraining orders issued by the courts.
The Domestic Violence Deterrence system continuously monitors and tracks aggressors for the purpose of alerting victims to their presence within a close range, up to 500 meters (1,640 ft.). However, our powerful Domestic Violence system goes beyond close range victim notification. Because the aggressor is tracked via GPS, if they enter an exclusion zone, the victim will be notified. Exclusion zones can be both fixed and mobile for on-the-go tracking.
