GPS technology tracks sex offenders

Posted on: January 11, 2011

In Pittsburgh, PA, forty-three sex offenders are wearing monitoring devise as a condition of their parole. With more than 1,100 registered sex offenders living in Allegheny County, this pilot program is at least a first step to keep track of sex offenders.

Sex offenders have a high recidivism of re-offending because of the psychology of the crime and its criminal activity. As a result, law enforcement has placed these GPS monitors provided by Guardian Protection Service on sex offenders.  As long as the offenders stay in the inclusion area, they are okay, however if they travel into an exclusion area, police are notified immediately.

What are exclusion zones for sex offenders? Exclusion zones are schools, daycares, playgrounds, any type of facilities where children congregate. As a result, these monitors help police to monitor sex offenders and when an offender enters these zones, they are arrested and possibly sent back to prison. The GPS monitor works 24/7, tracks the movements of a sex offender and if you have children, this is really significant for their safety.
