iSECUREtrac has announced that Court Programs will deploy iSECUREtrac’s tracNET24 monitoring system in Mississippi and Florida. Court Programs will begin deploying units in early November starting with the Gulfport/Biloxi area, the most populated region of Mississippi. Deployment will continue throughout the rest of the state and into the Florida panhandle near Santa Rosa County and Ft. Walton Beach.

Court Programs will place tracNET24 units on a wide range of offenders including deadbeat dads, juveniles, domestic violence and misdemeanor cases, and those on pre-trial release for felonies. By adopting tracNET24, Court Programs is providing Mississippi and Florida with the most advanced offender tracking available. The device allows authorities to monitor, via a satellite system, the whereabouts of offenders who are outfitted with small 12-ounce personal tracking units (PTU). A PTU receives signals from the Department of Defense’s GPS satellite system and after the PTU is docked for charging, the PTU downloads the offenders’ movements into a database accessed by correction officials. In addition, authorities may program exclusion areas, places where the presence of an offender is prohibited; such as certain residences, schools, and child care facilities. tracNET24 gives authorities verifiable records of where offenders have been, 24 hours per day, seven days a week.
