GPS To Warn Domestic Violence Victims

(originally aired on NPR August 8, 2008)

This week, the governor of Illinois signed legislation that will allow the state’s judges to tag domestic violent offenders with GPS tracking devices. The abusers’ victims will get monitors that warn them if their attacker is in the area. Alex Chadwick talks with Michael Bischof, who spearheaded the movement to pass the bill after his sister’s death.
