Gov. Scott Walker announced a plan to budget $3 million for grants to “allow GPS monitoring of certain dangerous individuals receiving first-time restraining orders.”
Last April, Walker signed “Cindy’s Law,” which allows courts to institute GPS monitoring for restraining order violators. The new plan would allow people deemed especially dangerous to be tracked by GPS before violating the order.
Is it right that people who haven’t violated an order should have their whereabouts tracked electronically? And should the state provide grants to make it happen? Vote in our poll and discuss in the comments.
