Probation: Electronic Monitoring Home Detention Mendocino County: 

Electronic monitoring technology is seen as beneficial for communities and probationary offenders alike. This rapidly growing practice provides accountability and supervision at a greatly reduced cost, and it has been proven to actually improve outcomes for those under probation supervision. Allowing the defendant an opportunity to complete their legal obligations while remaining employed, attending counseling, drug or alcohol programs and to remain home with their families. Once enrolled into the program the enrollee movement in the community will be restricted except for necessary programming. It is expected that, barring unusual circumstances, the EM participants will exhibit a stable and productive community life.

Electronic Monitoring of probationers isn’t just a trend to save money.
A National Institute of Justice 2011 study of Florida offenders placed on electronic monitoring found that Electronic Monitoring significantly reduces the likelihood of failure under community supervision. The decline in the risk of failure is about 31 percent compared with offenders placed on other forms of community supervision.”

Pretrial Release:  Electronic Monitoring Home Detention Mendocino County:
Judicial-Link uses Global Positioning System (GPS) satellite monitoring for medium to high risk offenders as part of a special condition imposed by the Court. GPS monitoring is used to enforce curfews, establish prohibited/restricted areas, and assess and monitor offender movement in the community. Depending on the type of GPS technology employed with a particular enrollee, monitoring can be performed on an almost real-time basis. GPS offers a high level of offender accountability to both the public and crime victims by monitoring when an offender enters or exits prescribed areas known as inclusion zones or exclusion zones.

Global positioning system (GPS) technology use radio signals to communicate with satellites orbiting the earth. GPS technology locates the BLUtag Electronic Ankle Monitor by measuring the distance between multiple satellites and the device to determine the enrollee’s location. In addition to meeting the requirements of specified California statute, GPS has proven to be an effective tool used in supervising Electronic Monitoring Home Detention participants.

Pretrial Trial Detention and Jail capacity in California: The potential of pretrial release programs to relieve jail population pressures becomes apparent when we examine jail populations more closely. The most recently available data show that as of September of 2014, roughly 50,000—or 62 percent—of beds were filled with inmates awaiting trial or sentencing (Figure 2).1 Moreover, the need for jail space for sentenced inmates has been growing since 2012, after the state implemented corrections realignment. source: Public Policy Institute of California.
