GPS trackers for paedophiles

I think the idea has considerable merit. Sooner or latter the offenders will need to intergrated back into the community. There will always be people who will object to having them in their area. If it helps to allay their fears good.

Queensland Premier Anna Bligh has promised to introduce satellite tracking of sex offenders, overturning a long-standing reluctance within the state's Labor Government.

Electronic bracelets are currently used to check whether released sex offenders meet their curfews but they cannot be tracked.

Ms Bligh and a succession of corrective services ministers have previously said the tracking technology was prone to blind spots and was too expensive.

But on Monday she vowed to introduce the technology at her routine post-cabinet media conference.
