Knife crime offenders in London will be tagged with GPS tracking devices after leaving prison as the UK capital attempts to curb the growing problem of violent crime on its streets.

CNN reports the year‑long pilot program will see 100 offenders from four of the city's knife crime hotspots issued with the devices.

When the program launches on February 18, it will allow police to automatically check an offender's location against the scene of a reported crime.
