by / June 18, 2003
VINCENNES, Ind. -- Wabash Valley Regional Community Corrections based in Vincennes, Indiana, has adopted the tracNET24 GPS tracking and monitoring system. Wabash Valley Regional Community Corrections serves both Knox and Pike Counties in Indiana with an average daily caseload of 200 offenders.

"Wabash Valley will use [the system] on our high-profile offenders, including child molesters and drug dealers as a condition of bond," said Robert Hatton, executive director of Wabash Valley Regional Community Corrections. "We need alternative solutions to keep up with these individuals particularly when we get into a jail overcrowding issue," Hatton added.
