Another technological innovation, one of the more interesting strate-gies for managing the three elements of probation supervision, is map-ping technology or geographic information systems (GIS). Mapping has helped law enforcement locate hot spots of crime. Police departments used to map with pins on a “point map.” Today, mapping is done electroni-cally and affords complex and instant analyses. Probation departments use mapping as a tool for the management of offenders in the community. Mapping helps ensure that probation and parole officers are dispersed in areas with high concentrations of offenders.
