CANTON, Texas -- Van Zandt County Corrections Services of Canton, Texas, has entered into an agreement for iSECUREtrac's tracNET24 criminal justice tracking system. The county will initially deploy passive GPS tracking systems on offenders.

"We expect that GPS technology will give us a better understanding of offender location 24 hours a day," said Joe Hanley, director of Van Zandt County Community Supervision and Corrections Department. "We hope this will be a vast improvement to traditional house arrest devices."
