Electronic Monitoring,
Financial Benefits*

Costs of prison are about 6 times higher than costs of EM

Electronic Monitoring (EM) reduces offenders risk of failure by 31%

In addition, GPS monitoring results in 6% fewer supervision failures
vs house arrest based on RF technology

Offenders can pay for EM

Agents report that EM goals and objectives were being met, i.e.

Alternative to imprisonment

reduce recidivism

protect public and victims of crime

compliance to terms and conditions of supervision (absconding, violations of court imposed
conditions of supervision, re-offending)

Recidivism significantly reduced by EM, especially if online voice
communication with offender (direct intervention) can be used

Statewide 24h / 7d Monitoring Center has significantly reduced the number
of minor alerts (and costs) to be handled by officers
* Study of Florida State University (January 2010), 6 additional studies (1990 until 2006), field study Germany (2002 until 2010)
GPS versus RF Monitoring*

House Arrest (RF Monitoring) only indicates “digital” information
(offender at house / not at house)

Information lost if offender left house arrest zone without permission
(no GPS tracking)

No inclusion zone / exclusion zone capabilities

Usage of RF versus GPS (Florida State):
* Study of Florida State University (January 2010), 6 additional studies (1990 until 2006), field experience Utah County (2. quarter 2010)
