GPS Offender Tracking
•
GPS offenders are monitored by a one piece ankle bracelet
equipped with a state of the art global positioning satellite
(GPS) monitor.
•
Monitors use cell towers for tracking along with satellite
tracking which is added security as satellites alone can lose
tracking inside buildings.

GPS Offender Tracking
56% enrollment growth in one year
• Growth presents challenges. More referrals and pressure to
divert offenders into diversion programs has meant a higher
number of participants without jobs and a higher incidence
of positive drug screens.
• Higher unemployment among GPS Offender Tracking
participants meant that they spend more time enrolled in
other programs on campus.
