[Cancelled] September 21, 2017 - Dinner Meeting
Topic: The Evolution of the Electronic Monitoring System from Radio Frequency to Global Positioning Systems
Speaker: Paul Lucci, MA Deputy Commissioner of Probation (ret.)
In May 2005, the Electronic Monitoring Program (EMP), often referred to as an “ankle bracelet” used to track probationers and parolees evolved from a traditional Radio Frequency System (RF) to include a Global Positioning System (GPS). GPS monitoring dramatically improved the EMP as it can accurately track and archive an offender’s position indefinitely.
A component of the GPS program includes a Crime Correlation analysis. This analysis can then be used in comparison with crimes committed in the area. This would allow staff at the monitoring center to cross check these crime reports against the GPS signals to reveal whether any probationers or parolees were in the area at the time of the offense.
