For a million fugitives, freedom starts at county line
USA Today
Their arrest warrants pile up by the thousands: One for a man accused of punching his girlfriend in the face. Another for a man who crashed, drunk, into a liquor store. Another for a man charged with killing a teen in a joy ride that went wrong. But the authorities are not searching for any of those fugitives, and even if they happen to find them, they will not pursue them beyond the county line.

Pennsylvania county's supervised bail program is being expanded
Towanda Daily Review
In response to increased usage of Bradford County, Pennsylvania's supervised bail program, the program is being expanded, which will almost double the number of individuals who can enroll in the program, county officials said. The program was launched in September 2013 to reduce the overcrowding at the Bradford County jail. At their recent meeting, the Bradford County commissioners voted to create a third, full-time bail-release officer position for the supervised bail program, which is a program aimed at increasing the number of defendants who are out on bail.

GPS monitoring helps Philadelphia juvenile courts
NewsWorks
Even as many people ditch landline phones at home, for years it's been a must-have for those who are on house arrest. Nonviolent offenders in the adult and juvenile court systems can be given house arrest at a judge's discretion. Adults need to have a working landline at home cleared of all features, such as DSL and call waiting, or they don't qualify. In the juvenile system, it's a different story. The ankle bracelets those offenders wear are actually cell phones with GPS capabilities — no landline necessary.
