In re A.M., A136288

The trial court's order placing minor on global positioning system (GPS) monitoring as a condition of probation for being a truant is affirmed, where: 1) the juvenile court has statutory authority to make any reasonable orders for the conduct of a minor adjudged a ward of the court under Welfare and Institutions Code section 601, which are comparable to conditions of probation; and 2) in appropriate circumstances, such as may exist where a ward continues a pattern of truancy and violates curfew, GPS monitoring may be an appropriate condition of probation for a section 601 ward.
