Although electronic monitoring (EM) itself is not a new concept, legal and technological advancements have made its usage and scope more widespread.

Its real value is beginning to be properly understood as the challenges of prison capacity, judiciary bandwidth, a growing emphasis on rehabilitation over incarceration and limited resources, continue to mount in the justice system.

To address these challenges, leaders must work even more collaboratively with other agencies and organisations and embrace new technologies and tools to enhance productivity, impact and effectiveness - investing in technologies such as electronic monitoring, data analytics and artificial intelligence enables the justice system to better understand the behaviour of offenders, tailor interventions and prevent reoffending.

In our latest report –Electronic monitoring: A catalyst for transformation in the justice system – we share valuable insights into the benefits, successes and emerging trends in EM, gained from our partnership and work with the Ministry of Justice. The report delves into the:

  • Ways in which electronic monitoring supports offender management and enhances the Probation Service’s understanding of an offender's risk factors and rehabilitative needs.
  • Ease of scaling and adapting electronic monitoring to handle large complex projects or innovative enhancements, from GPS tracking and sobriety tags to location monitoring for acquisitive crimes.
  • Value of collaboration and data-driven decision making to help personalise justice, to support offenders in changing their behaviour and improve public safety.
