Tracking parolees using a GPS ankle tracker is very helpful to probation and parole officers. Parole officers often make home visits to check up on their clients. Giving the parolee a GPS tracking device to wear on their ankle helps officers get more frequent, real-time data even when they are not physically at the client’s house. Here are a few benefits of parolees wearing ankle trackers.

Small and Lightweight

One benefit of the ankle trackers is that they are small and lightweight. This helps the parolee to be more comfortable instead of having to drag around a big, clunky GPS tracking device. The CAT-110 only weighs 67g, and the dimensions are 61mm x 49mm x 22mm. Since the parolees have to wear this tracker all the time, it is important that it is as small and lightweight as possible.

Monitors in Real Time

Another benefit of parolees having an ankle tracker is that it gives officers real-time location data. This is very helpful when monitoring whether the parolees are where they should be and not breaking their curfew. The real-time location feature is thanks to a built-in U-blox, GPS module, GPRS module, and a low power ARM processor. While it may be necessary for parole officers to make occasional home visits, being able to monitor clients in real time is extremely helpful to check up on location when the officer is off-site.

Important Alerts

Lastly, the GPS ankle trackers give officers important alerts. The trackers will give alerts for geo-fence boundary crossings, low battery, and scheduled GPS position. There is also a built-in belt-off alarm. The geo-fence boundary alert is especially important for clients who are supposed to stay in a certain area. Boundaries can be created by the parole officer and if the client crosses those boundaries, the officer will be alerted. The low battery alert is also important so that the client understands when it is time to charge the tracker.

An ankle GPS tracking device can be used for many different types of people and pets, but it is especially helpful when dealing with parolees. The ankle tracker provides a simple way for officers to track their clients using real-time location data. The tracker also provides various alerts to deliver more data. Also, these trackers are very small and lightweight, easing the burden that the parolee may feel about having to wear the tracker all day.

GPS tracking software school bus

As part of a school assignment to develop a new business , a group of Costa Mesa students have developed a GPS tracker to aid those with Alzheimer’s and other disabilities.  Inspired by another student with a disability, the students will be presenting their company, Gotect, and their device in a contest judged by Wall Street bankers with hopes of finding investors.  As they prepare for their trip to New York City, the students are still raising the $20,000 required to attend.

GPS tracking devices, particularly ankle bracelet GPS trackers are often considered as additional security options in caring for individuals at risk for wandering or exploitation.

Suspected Thief Forgets He’s Wearing a GPS Tracking Ankle Bracelet

A suspected thief in Washington state either seriously underestimated the precise information provided by his GPS ankle bracelet via GPS tracking software or, more likely, forgot to remove it before allegedly embarking on a spree of theft from an Eagles fraternity lodge.  GPS tracking data confirms that the man made multiple trips between the lodge and a nearby motel.  Approximately $2,000 was stolen, and the man is now suspected in past thefts based on evidence found at the scene.  The police, confirming that truth is sometimes stranger than fiction, stated that “You can’t make this stuff up.” Video surveillance from the night of the alleged crimes has been turned over to authorities, and a second suspect has been identified based on evidence.

If  you’ve read many posts on this blog, we often post about the benefits of GPS ankle bracelets for people at risk for wandering away or becoming the victim of exploitation or violence.  Here’s a great story about how a GPS tracking wrist bracelet aided authorities in locating a mentally disabled man who had wondered away from home.

As a part of Project Lifesaver, a program launched by the Sarasota Police Department several years ago, the disabled man is one of 75 people considered at risk for wandering provided with GPS tracking bracelets.  Participants include adults with dementia and other disabilities as well as children with autism and Down’s Syndrome.

The rescued man was safely recovered near Caspersen Beach, approximately two miles from his home.  Authorities partially credit the use of the GPS tracking device for saving the man’s life, as it allowed them to locate him before the tide came in, which the man likely would not have survived.

A Connecticut program designed to provide early warning to domestic violence victims when their assailants get too close may be expanding.  Currently available in the cities of Hartford, Danielson, and Bridgeport, victims receive automated alerts via GPS tracking software  and a GPS tracking ankle bracelet when an assailant comes within 5,000 to 2,500 feet.  The program costs $22 per day per offender, which adds up to $2 million per year. Approximately one-third of Connecticut court cases are tied to domestic violence.  Read more on this story.
