The Division of Parole Services launched its Electronic Monitoring Program on March 1, 2012 with a GPS tracking program for offenders who have committed a sex offense. The program, using an ankle bracelet, monitors the offender’s whereabouts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This program provides agents and treatment providers with a greater insight into the offender’s lifestyle and travel habits. The Division expanded its program on December 1, 2016 to include Home Curfew (RF) program for offenders under parole supervision. The Electronic Monitoring Program also serve as a pro-active motivational tool where agents can monitor offender’s job search efforts, treatment compliance, and other offender specific treatment concerns such as substance abuse, mental health, and medical treatment issues.
