State paying €100k for tags, but no law to track sex offenders – Naughten

In Families, Roscommon-South Leitrim by Denis Naughten

The taxpayer is forking €102,000 per year for electronic tags yet the lack of laws to allow for the electronic tagging of sex offenders is undermining the security of women and children in our communities, claims Denis Naughten TD.

“The Prison Service currently has 10 electronic tags which are used for prisoners on temporary release and it has entered a contract for a further 50 tags at a total annual cost of €102,000; yet we are still awaiting the new law which will allow for high risk sex offenders to be tagged,” stated Denis Naughten.
