Frequently Asked Questions
24/7 GPS Location Monitoring FAQs
What happens if the devices is tampered with, removed or not charged
Nothing physically prevents a defendant from tampering with or removing a GPS ankle bracelet. However, the GPS ankle bracelet is visually inspected during office visits for any evidence of tampering or damage. Moreover, WPS receives immediate notification from the device if the strap or back-plate is removed or tampered with. WPS investigates all suspected tampers and reports such activity to the Court or other agency after confirmation. WPS has a zero tamper tolerance policy.
If the device begins to run low on battery, the candidate is contacted and informed they need to charge it immediately. Should the device go uncharged and die, the candidate will be reported for non-compliance. In many instances LEO can be notified immediately with a last known location.
What is considered a violation, and what happens after
A violation occurs when a candidate breaches a condition ordered by court or other agency. As it relates to GPS location monitoring it is considered when a curfew or zone restriction is breached; or if the device is tampered with in any way. Any violation that occurs will be reported immediately to one or more of the following appropriate agencies: the prosecuting attorneys, court, LEO, or other agency.
