Electronic tagging (Radio 4 series: Thinking Allowed)

This episode of Radio 4's Thinking Allowed series includes a segment on electronic tagging. In the summer of 2005, the UK Home Secretary, David Blunkett, announced the expansion of tagging schemes for offenders which was predicted to lead to an increase in the number that are tagged and the introduction of satellite tagging.

Host, Laurie Taylor, debates the role of tagging in the UK's approach to law and order with Dr Mike Nellis, Senior Lecturer in Criminal Justice Studies, School of Social Sciences, Birmingham University; and Tom Stacey, Director of the Offenders' Tag Association. The segment is second in the audio clip after a segment on kitchens.
