Alternative Sentencing combined with a GPS Ankle Monitor in California and Judicial-Link Monitoring Solutions.
In justice and law, house arrest (also called home confinement, home detention) is a measure by which a person is confined to a residence wearing a GPS Ankle Monitor; sometimes allowed to work, attend counseling and medical appointments. Activities are usually monitored by an Electronic Monitoring Company.
Sentences for a criminal conviction can take many forms, and a conviction doesn’t always mean a trip to jail or prison. Electronic monitoring with GPS Ankle Monitor can maintain the integrity of the judicial process by securing defendants, protecting victims, witnesses and the community from threat, danger or interference, allowing the defendant to serve their sentence productively while serving their family, work, and community.
Never before has the tracking of an enrollee been as advanced and effective as with active GPS tracking. Not only can we establish multiple INCLUSION ZONES to ensure that the enrollee is at a particular location for certain time periods (e.g. home, work, rehab), we can also establish EXCLUSION ZONES for areas the court orders the enrollee to avoid.
Our Monitoring Center can watch an enrollee movements on the screen as they occur. Along with the GPS receiver incorporated into the unit, there is also a cellular receiver which allows the device to communicate instantly.

What is Alternative Sentencing? Alternative Sentencing focuses on offenders and their readiness for rehabilitation through the application of evidence based practices designed to reduce re-offending and increase individual accountability with the goal of enhancing public safety and reducing recidivism.
Sentencing options combined with Gps monitoring are a win-win for both those convicted of crimes and the criminal justice system. They prevent jails and prisons from becoming overcrowded and help give offenders, especially first-time offenders, a chance to rehabilitate and set their life straight.
How does Judicial-Link Active Gps Monitoring Work?
Offender is fitted with an electronic Ankle Bracelet, the Global Positioning System (GPS) monitoring works due to the triangulation of satellites orbiting the earth. To “triangulate” means that a GPS receiver measures distance using the travel time of radio signals. When a user’s GPS ankle bracelet reads the signals sent to it by the satellites, these signals can provide information as to the wearer’s location, speed of movement and direction of movement.
