Tailored to the Individual
With traditional incarceration methods, the government houses individuals, and budget dictates whether a jail can offer programs. However, the government cannot offer all the programming an individual may need. With Judicial Link GPS, the individual works with their program agent to identify resources. These resources may include individual counseling, GED classes, treatment, or job readiness training. The individual can participate in tailor-made programming while connected to Judicial-Link GPS. Judicial-Link GPS obtains immediate and ongoing feedback by using an ankle monitor. This way, the probation agent knows the individual is on track with their rehabilitation. If they skip a treatment session or fail to appear for job training, probation can find out immediately.
