Perhaps the first instance of convict tracking in India, Haryana Police has decided to tag the law offenders who go out of jails on parole, with GPS. The device will be in the form of an anklet or a bracelet. This scheme will be implemented first at Yamunanagar district of the state.
Haryana police has tied up with Taiwan-based Teamsharp Electrotech, which will
supply these gadgets and further track the movements of the criminals on parole. The monitoring bracelet or anklet will cost around Rs 20,000 to Rs 25,000 per unit and it would be water proof and can withstand external pressure.
Any attempt to take off or to damage the equipment will send an alert to the police.
