GPS Catches Sex Offender On School Property



Los Angeles: A Global Positioning Satellite System (GPS) has led to the arrest of a high-risk sex offender who trespassed on an elementary school campus yesterday in violation of his parole.

Ronald Bryant, 37, was taken into custody Friday, November 10,2006. Bryant is a high-risk sex offender who is monitored with an electronic ankle bracelet, which is part of the Veritracks GPS system. A Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) officer working out of the Real Time Analysis and Critical Response Division (RACR) was monitoring the system when he noticed Bryant had walked onto the Parmelee Avenue Elementary School campus at 1338 East 76th Place.

Bryant was tracked onto the campus just before 10:00 A.M. and then left 15 minutes later, a clear violation of his special conditions of parole. Bryant’s State parole agent was contacted and notified of the violation. Police continued to track Bryant to a motel in South Gate where he currently lives. With the help of the South Gate Police Department, Bryant was taken into custody.

The LAPD was selected by the State Parole Department to conduct a pilot program of the Veritracks monitoring system. Since June, LAPD RACR Division officers have been using the system to track high risk sex offenders in Los Angeles Area.

Anyone with questions or information is asked to call Media Relations Section at 213-485-3586.
