GPS used to map

A state pilot project is being planned to keep track of violent sex offenders who have been paroled. The two-and-a-half million-dollar program will use GPS & will allow law enforcement to build maps with “zones of exclusion” for the sex offenders, such as playgrounds, schools, day-care centers or the homes of victims.

This will be an Internet-based system. The system will initially focus on Memphis, Nashville and other cities in Tennessee’s three grand divisions. The legislature has appropriated money for the system.
