The electronic monitoring program is typically offered to low-risk criminal offenders. An electronic monitor is placed on the individual’s ankle so that he or she can be tracked in the community. Instead of serving a straight jail sentence, you may be allowed to wear a monitor so that you can work or go to school. The program has reduced the jail population and saved the county money by placing low-risk offenders back into the community to become productive members of society.
Offenders are outfitted with a GPS ankle bracelet device to monitor compliance with court-ordered conditions (i.e. inclusion, exclusion, curfew, travel, etc.). If you qualify, you may be eligible to serve your jail sentence on a work-release program monitored with a GPS device instead of being incarcerated in the jail.
