No escape for Ohio jailbirds…

One US state reckons it's cracked how to keep track of all of its 44,000 prison inmates - RFID-chip them.

The Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction (ODRH) has approved a $415,000 contract to trial the tracking technology with Alanco Technologies.

I like it! Once there prison terms are over, however, the transmitters should be removed. The prisoner rights groups are going to have a cow about it though.

It may allow for a more liberal prison atmosphere if the inmates are kept track of. When one leaves the perimeter he or she sets off an alarm. Im not big on the technology, but could you say wrap aluminum foil over it to shield its signals? What about the flexable lead like those used in XRay gowns?
