GPS Tracking of Criminal Offenders in Washington, D.C.By Leonard A. Sipes, Jr., Senior Public Affairs Specialist/Social Media Manager Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency
In Washington, D.C. offenders on community supervision—probation, parole, or supervised release—face an impediment to criminal activity and non-compliance: GPS tracking, which monitors the individual’s whereabouts 24 hours per day.
This article summarizes the effort in the nation’s capital and offers a brief overview of national GPS research. The Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency (CSOSA), the federal agency that supervises D.C. Superior Court sentenced offenders in the nation’s capital, has been using GPS since April 2003. About 600 offenders are currently in the program. The numbers will change to respond to new initiatives or requests from law enforcement partners. full story
