Kit Malthouse – 2021 Comments on GPS Tags for Prolific Offenders

The comments made by Kit Malthouse, the Minister for Crime and Policing, on 16 March 2021.

Being burgled or robbed is devastating and I understand how frustrating it is when the perpetrators can’t be caught, both for the public and the police.

Tagging these prolific offenders so we know where they are 24 hours a day should be powerful persuasion to change their ways and will help police find and charge them if they don’t. It’s another tool helping probation staff to cut crime and keep the public safe.
