A three-month trail by Nottinghamshire Police to evaluate GPS tags has concluded that the technology could improve monitoring and reduce reoffending rates.

Current tags can only operate when in the vicinity of a base unit, normally installed at the offenders home. These send an alarm to the monitoring station of the offender breaks a court imposed curfew.

A tag that uses GPS can allow monitoring of offenders at all times, their movements can be tracked and overlaid on crime maps and the trial demonstrated their effectiveness both in the monitoring of offenders and the reduction on reoffending of those who were fitted with them.

The Government would now need to change the law to permit wide scale use of GPS tagging technology.

Company might worry about the slotted V shaped area at the top of the unit. Seems to be an area that could be compromised with a small flat headed screwdriver to open it up.
As they say where their is a will there is a way.
If they work is could all for more releases and free up more cells. But the monitoring will take skill and more to follow up on those who leave the area restricted to.
Should thy break the areas and or times restricted to, perhaps adding more time (3-5 years) to be served (consecutively) should be given as well and another incentive not to break the rules.

It is possible to monitor the existing tags. over much larger distances.
They just need to position transponder receivers in strategic places, and open the existing personal home receivers to a wider area. This is possible with todays systems and could be implemented within a few weeks.

The some larger shopping areas already have the receivers to check for people visiting them against their release conditions etc.

Here in the USA the recidivism rate is about 85% or more. It would be great to at least know where they might be.
