How effective are ankle monitors?

Court records show the man who shot two Orlando Police officers last Friday night was supposed to be under police supervision. He was required to wear an ankle monitor issued out of Georgia, but he broke it off. During a June encounter with University of Central Florida officers, Daton Viel could have been arrested but instead of cooperating, Viel took off running and got away. This has sparked concern about ankle monitors and their effectiveness.
