I see where you are coming from, but don't completely agree with the idea that RFID is not suited for such a task. It really depends on the size of the places that you are talking about. My company is actually implementing the science fiction at the moment ;D We are rolling out a system of student progress and attendance monitors called Beetrust (www.beestar.co.uk/beetrust). This is made available through active tags in rather large buildings. In this sense, jails or other mid-size locations can be covered.

However, I do agree that for tracking on a city-based level and potentially beyond that, the currently used GPS is probably the best thing.

I think it would be good to know what advantage you think RFID would bring over GPS in this specific use-case. I really like that you are thinking out of the box and working on your own ideas. Cool stuff and exciting field to be looking into!
