Petition to Ron Kind, Tammy Baldwin, President of the United States, Scott Walker, Department of Justice

Fix the way Department of Corrections Uses GPS Monitoring

It used to be that probation and parole would deem certain probationers to be eligible for GPS monitoring as a way of rehabilitating them or stopping from offending. Now, thousands of people are being placed on GPS Monitoring without regard to who they are, meaning even if they've been offense free for years they are still placed on the system, or if they move from out of state and their rules from there don't require them to wear it they are placed on them. Studies have proven (and yes there is evidence) that the GPS system being used is ineffective, sending people to jail for false alerts, inability to track due to poor cell signal, or natural wear and tear on the device (see WisconsinWatch.org's webpage or 10 other investigative sites). The bracelets are bulky, catching on nearly everything, and are known to malfunction within 2 weeks to 3 months of installation. On top of that, the system is run off of cellular signals,  which can be weak in quite a few areas. Not only is this potentially a danger to the public, with some offenders being quite violent or at risk of reoffending (Sex offenders, domestic violence, drug offenders included), but this also hinders the rehabilitation and wellbeing of those that have been good and offense free. Taxpayers are the ones that pay for these devices AND for the monitoring of the offenders, and I feel that is  wrong considering all of the evidence shown regarding how ineffective these devices are. The state, dept of Justice, and the dept of corrections should look into newer reliable methodsof GPS monitoring, and take some offenders that have been doing good off of the system altogether.
