Abstract: In February 2007 the Indiana Department of Correction (IDOC) implemented a Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) pilot program for paroled sex offenders residing in Vanderburgh (Southern district) and St. Joseph (Northern district) counties. As part of this process, researchers at the Center for Criminal Justice Research were selected to document, describe, and assess the planning, design, and implementation of the pilot program. Between October 2007 and June 2008 the research team worked with IDOC personnel, parole district supervisors and agents, community corrections staff, and the GPS vendor to collect the data for this assessment. This summary report presents the basic findings and recommendations of the study.
