James Kilgore has written a new report which provides a set of critical reflections on the use of electronic monitoring in the criminal justice system and beyond. The report argues:
- That electronic monitoring should be legally classified as a form of incarceration
- That electronic monitoring should not be added to regimes of parole, probation or pre-trial release but only instead of incarceration
- That we need regulations concerning the location tracking data that is generated by people on a GPS monitor
- That we need a much more nuanced understanding of electronic monitoring before it is more widely implemented in the criminal justice system
The full report is available at the website of the Center for Media Justice.
