This paper begins with a historical look at sex offenders and the crimes they commit. It offers statistics on the number of repeat offenders. It also provides evidence on how many offenders are missing or non-compliant which makes it difficult to track and maintain a surveillance. It concludes that a possible intervention to be taken would be to micro chip offenders in order to keep track of there whereabouts at all times and possible procedures that can be taken if this were to happen.

From the Paper:

"Electronic monitoring bracelets are not a fail safe way of monitoring offenders. Offenders can easily break the monitoring hardware or simply flee due to the bracelet only being able to let officials know that the device is out of range. With the micro-chip implant there would be virtually no way for the sex offender to abscond because of the implanted device. There are not many ways around the micro-chip as there are the electronic bracelet such as landline issues and self information to the police where honesty can be an issue.
Not only will absconding be less of an issue but the implementation of this micro-chipping policy would also be viewed as a deterrent to sex offenders. With the development of this program I strongly believe recidivism rates will decrease and law enforcement will have an easier time trying to manage the problems that need to be addressed as it pertains to sex offenders."
