Survey of Electronic Monitoring Users
Thirty years ago, in 1983, New Mexico Judge Jack Love placed a pulsing radio transmitter on an offender’s ankle—the first time judicial authority was used to place a monitoring device on an offender.
Offender monitoring, which began at the fringes of science, is now an important and growing part of society’s response to crime and criminal behavior. On the occasion of this 30th anniversary, The Journal of Offender Monitoring is conducting a survey of how courts and corrections agencies are using electronic monitoring—including GPS tracking, RF home curfew monitoring, alcohol testing, random calling and check-in/reporting systems—in an attempt to measure both the scale and intensity of remote offender supervision in the U.S. today.
Will you take a few minutes to help us learn about your program?
The questions are simple. They include basic questions such as whether you currently use EM and, if you do, what kinds of offenders you put on EM. We’ll ask about the equipment you use and whether you are satisfied with the experience. And we’ll ask about where you see monitoring headed in the future.
In all, the survey takes about 10 minutes to complete. To thank you for taking the time to participate, we will send you the full report (at no charge of course) when we publish the results later this year.
