Journal of Offender Monitoring
Electronic Monitoring Statutes in the United States

Ken Kozlowski

Provisions that permit or require some form of monitoring device are a feature of sentencing laws federally and in all fifty states— but rarely if ever do they come in the form of a clean, stand-alone bill.  Rather, provisions related to electronic monitoring are usually enacted as sections within or amendments to larger bills—and sometimes in bills that deal with budgeting and procurement, not crime or sentencing.  This special guide from the editors of Journal of Offender Monitoring brings together, for the first time in one place, all federal, state, and territorial statutory provisions that mandate, regulate, or otherwise affect remote supervision technologies.

EM Statutes in the United States will be a useful resource for many readers.  For court officers, judges, and probation officers who use EM, it serves as a single quick-reference source of statutory authority.  Legislators and policy makers can see at a glance how states are using electronic monitoring for pretrial, probation, and parole supervision.  Companies who market monitoring technology and services need to know where monitoring is used, recommended, and required by law, as well as restrictions on its use, and they'll find it here.
