After an internal audit revealed negligence, officials at the Orange County Probation Department have terminated a contract with a GPS monitoring service.

The audit showed that in a review of 143 cases, there were more than 15 instances of “gross negligence,” including failure to track people on probation for periods up to 28 days and not reporting individuals for repeatedly violating their probation.
