How does Judicial-Link Active Gps Monitoring Work?
Enrolled defendant 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.
