Sex Offender to be Tracked by GPS in Pilot Program … Hang Garmin’s or Tom Tom’s on All of ‘Em


Sex offender tracked by GPS in pilot program … pilot, this should be made permanent every where.

More than 1100 registered sex offenders in Allegheny County, PA and 43 of them are now wearing GPS monitoring devices as part of a pilot program to monitor them as a condition of their parole. 43!!! So there are over 1050 sex offenders walking around without any monitoring? Now there’s some public safety.  With the obvious rate of recidivism of sex offenders this is an obvious condition of any parole for these dirt bags.

Can they wearing the GPS around their neck instead?

More than 1,100 registered sex offenders live and work in Allegheny County and 43 of them are now wearing monitoring devices as a condition of their parole.

District Attorney Stephen Zappala blames the nature of the crime for the need to better track these offenders.

“Because the psychology of the crime of the criminal actually is, they will re-offend and so we’re looking at persons who are recidivists,”Zappala said.


The offenders are monitored by places like Guardian Protection Service. The system uses GPS technology.

As long as the offenders stay in the inclusion area, they’re OK, but if they travel into an exclusion area, police are notified immediately.

“Exclusion zones for example [are] schools, daycares, playgrounds, facilities where children congregate for those sex offenders,” John Hudson, a security consultant, said. “We’ve identified in their red zones. If an offender with a device goes into one of the red zones, an exclusion zone, we’ll be notified immediately.”

      All these people are doing is giving the sex offender a get out of jail pass.

      Unless they have some means of detecting instantly when the unit is removed from the body, and a plan to issue a pickup order, they will not make this work.

      Dream on people. These criminals are smart and will find a way to escape the system. Jail for the rest of their lives is the only way.

      #1 Agreed…but these things do work. They can be tracked and the police are alerted if the thing is removed. My dad, a retired LE, does this a part of retirement job…there are devices in the cars that can detect if the person is where they said they are.

      If anything…BRAVO for at least this step.

      But I agree…child molesters should be hung at high noon and disembowed…no place on this earth for them.

      castration is the answer yet there are the rare cases of a 16 and 18 yr.old. The 18 yr. old is then registered as an offender for life even after they have been married for 37 years.
