Corrections Commissioner Christopher Epps says the tracking system can be programmed to alert officers of violations of court orders, regardless of location and offender proximity to judge, prosecutor, witness and others.

MDOC will test the program for six months.

The system uses a combination of Global Positioning Satellite and Advanced Forward Link Trilateration technology to track the location of house arrest offenders and record their locations.

Epps says the devise will ensure that an offender subject to electronic monitoring will be under continual surveillance both at home and throughout the community.

    If you want to track them better. Just keep them in prison.
