GPS Tracker For Juvenile Offenders
In an effort to improve internal management, fleet management, and overall security, Australia has decided to outfit transport vans that shuttle juvenile offenders from detention centers to the courtroom with GPS tracking systems. Supervisors will be able to monitor the movements of transport vans live in real-time with the GPS tracking technology, and if they notice any suspicious activity or abnormal routes being taken they can quickly and easily alleviate the situation by alerting police. With many juveniles aged 10-16 having a fear of prison, many will make attempts of escape during transitional periods, making it important for authorities to have good communication with each other throughout the entire transit process.
