GPS tracking discussed on DC Public Safety
GPS tracking was the topic of a recent DC Public Safety podcast, featuring Joe Russo, the director of the Corrections Technology Center of Excellence within the National Law Enforcement and Corrections Technology Center System at the University of Denver.
Russo discussed innovations in GPS tracking, drug and alcohol testing, video instruction and supervision and officer safety and social media during the program.
One point specifically discussed was the proposed set of guidelines created for GPS tracking systems by the National Institute of Justice. Their standard would define minimum performance requirements of GPS tracking systems and test methods for the systems.
The idea behind the proposed standards is that they would help corrections officials make better purchasing decisions, and could, among other things, inform the design and manufacture of future tracking systems. You can read more about the proposed standards here.
