Judge wants teenagers to wear monitoring devices 24/7

Postby KC » 28 Nov 2008, Fri 7:44 pm

Brazos County Justice of the Peace Tommy Munoz has requested an opinion from the Texas Attorney General's Office regarding the legality of a pilot program for truancy in Bryan ISD.

Munoz announced his plans for the program in September. The program would put electronic monitoring devices on students who skip class too often.

Those students would be tracked 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

In September, Munoz said, "We're just going to try and see what it does, how it does and it may not work here and it may be something that we need to get more. Then, we'll need to get more, but we'll just take it a day at a time."

If the program gets the OK, Munoz said in September that it would get underway in the near future.

The plan would be to order 10 electronic monitoring devices at a cost of $20,000. It's not yet known who will pay for the program.

Munoz has said the truant students' parents may have to foot the bill.

I don't know how this would be approved, there is something called the Constitution and invasion of privacy.
