    • The percent of total revocations for Community Control (32.7%) is substantially higher than the percent for Radio Frequency (RF) monitoring (7.1%) or Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) monitoring (25.1%).


    • The highest rate of successful completion (23.5%) comes from those placed on Radio Frequency (RF) monitoring.


    • Almost all all (83.4%) of the revocations for Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) monitoring are for technical violations.
