Miss. Parole Board Starts Electronic Monitoring

The Mississippi Parole Board has started releasing a few inmates on the condition that they use electronic monitoring devices.
Doug Davis said Monday that since he became Parole Board chairman in late July, the board has approved ankle bracelets for about 20 people.
A 2012 law authorized the board to release people with electronic devices that track their location. But, Davis says the monitoring was not used when Malcolm McMillin was board chairman.
McMillin left the Parole Board in July, and Gov. Phil Bryant promoted Davis to the chairmanship.
The Department of Corrections also releases some inmates with electronic monitoring devices.
There are a few differences. Under the MDOC program, an offender can't leave Mississippi. Under the Parole Board program, an offender can seek permission to go out of state.
