Offenders in Nova Scotia to wear GPS bracelets

People sentenced to house arrest in Nova Scotia will soon have to wear electronic ankle bracelets that track their whereabouts. The Nova Scotia government is bringing in electronic monitoring devices for people under house arrest or those who have been released with conditions. The plan is to test the system in the Halifax area early next year, starting with 10 units. The bracelets will be hooked up to a GPS so authorities can track the people wearing them. This will help prove if someone has violated a court order.
