GPS monitoring

    Ac­cord­ing to an audit con­duc­ted by the Los Angeles County pro­ba­tion de­part­ment one in every four GPS devices used to track ser­i­ous crim­in­als re­leased in the county is faulty. The Times ob­tained the res­ults of the audit through a pub­lic re­cords re­quest.
    Sen­tinel con­ten­ded that the ma­jor­ity of the prob­lems with their GPS track­ing devices were caused by un­trained pro­ba­tion of­ficers and felons who had failed to fol­low dir­ec­tions.
