News: GPS Could Be Used To Track Sex Offenders

pocketgpsworld.com
Following new reports of navigational software being used to monitor the activities of criminals, government plans could see GPS services used to track sex offenders if approved.

A pilot scheme for the plan is scheduled to begin next April. An ankle tag, similar to that already fitted to some criminals, would be fitted to those who have been convicted of sexual offences or crimes against children.

The GPS system would then monitor the movements of the individuals to prevent them from accessing areas where they might have an opportunity to reoffend - such as schools and playgrounds or victims' addresses.

Police would be alerted if the individuals accessed these areas, allowing them to act swiftly and apprehend those in danger of committing further crimes.
