Man With Ankle Monitor Escapes To Canada
A man on bail was able to escape to Canada despite wearing an ankle monitoring bracelet.
This latest breach has prompted the government not to renew their contract with ICS Security Concepts when it expires in November.
Last month, Minister of State for National Security Keith Bell said the government intends to review the electronic monitoring system and its management company over an “unacceptable” number of breaches.
While the company has maintained it is effectively monitoring over 300 ankle bracelets, both Mr Bell and Prime Minister Perry Christie expressed doubts over whether the contract with ICS Security Concepts will be renewed later this year.
Speculation over the monitoring system’s efficacy was heightened following the discovery of a badly decomposed body of a man wearing an electronic monitoring ankle bracelet in bushes off an isolated track road on the north-side of the South Beach canal.crime
