This award completes funding for award #2010-DE-BX-K005. This award was competitively made in response to a proposal submitted by the University of Oklahoma to an NIJ FY2010 solicitation "Developing and Evaluating Location-based Information Systems for Offender Supervision". This award was initially only partially funded.

The goal of this effort is to improve offender supervision. This project involves: (1) conducting a comprehensive evaluation of the Oklahoma Department of Corrections' location-based offender monitoring system; and based on that evaluation (2) then developing a geospatial tool kit to enable agencies to respond more effectively to potentially problematic behavior by offenders. ca/ncf
