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

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
