House committee substitute to the 1st edition makes the following changes.
Adds the North Carolina Coalition Against Domestic Violence to the entities that the Department of Public Safety (DPS) must consult with on the pilot program in Forsyth County for the use of global positioning system tracking devices on domestic violence offenders. Clarifies that the pilot is for the use of tracking on domestic violence offenders as a condition of pre-trial release (previously was not specified to be as a condition of pre-trial release). Amends the issues that are to be considered by deleting the consideration of whether the victim's location will be monitored or tracked as well as the offender's and what privacy or safety concerns such monitoring or tracking raises. Deletes the $25,000 appropriation for the pilot and instead makes the funding for the bill contingent upon the appropriation of funds in H 966 (2019 Appropriations Act). Amends the act's long title.
