Electronic Monitoring

Background Information The Electronic Monitoring Program, House Arrest and Home Supervision Programs allow the court and Probation Department to use the least restrictive controls necessary to ensure court appearances and encourage pro-social behavior. Electronic monitoring is a monitoring system that includes a residential phone line, a monitoring device, and an ankle bracelet. It keeps track of the defendant’s every move. The residential phone line cannot have specific features such as call forwarding, caller identification, or call waiting. The electronic monitoring system does not work on cellular phones. Instructions In this assignment, you will post a video response to the discussion thread using a tool called Video Note. If this is the first time you have used the tool, review the provided resources first. Before you record your video, draft out a response to the questions posed in the instructions.
