Crown & Defense
Electronic Offender Monitoring is a justice system tool that benefits both Crown and Defense. For Crown, individuals wearing an ankle bracelet monitoring device will help to ensure that they will show up for court, are properly supervised, and that should they attempt to run or commit another crime, they will be immediately apprehended. And for Defense, wearing an ankle bracelet will keep your client out of jail, promote rehabilitation and accountability, and allows your client(s) to prove themselves trustworthy.
Alternatives to Incarceration
The nation’s prisons and jails are overcrowded due to years of legislation designed to “get tough on crime.” In addition to creating a skyrocketing population in prisons and jails, these initiatives have unintentionally sent many low-risk non-violent offenders to prison. A large percentage of these offenders are incarcerated for drug-related crimes and/or possession.
Overcrowded prisons and jails present dangerous situations for both inmates and staff. They create situations where the agency is more vulnerable to lawsuits from inmates and creates a strain on the actual operations of a jail or prison with regard to food and health services, sanitation and maintenance. Corrections agencies simply cannot build jails and prisons quick enough and in a cost effective manner to help relieve the strain.
Electronic monitoring gives supervising agencies a tool to become “smart on crime” while holding offenders accountable for their actions. Offenders can keep their jobs or continue their educational endeavors while adhering to the other requirements imposed by the court, such as substance abuse treatment and counseling.
Because BluTag is a one-piece electronic monitoring device, offenders are not required to hand carry any other equipment. This one device is all that’s needed to effectively monitor the movements of offenders 24/7 and ensure they’re compliant with the terms of their supervision. BluTag monitors offenders in active, passive and hybrid modes, which provides a significant amount of flexibility for supervising agents/officers and administering appropriate sanctions.
We feel it's vitally important that the overcrowding of our prisons in Canada has to stop, and we can do this with no cost to the Canadian taxpayer. There are many individuals that can be released from custody with an Electronic Monitoring “Ankle Bracelet”.
We can supply ankle monitoring bracelets that will monitor, track, and locate individuals 24/7/365 after they are released by the courts. The systems will also ensure the individuals are complying with all of the conditions of release that the court has set.
The systems can be used for a wide variety of applications such as; DUI, Bail Hearings and Reviews, Probation, and Conditional Sentencing. They can also be used regarding Family Domestic Abuse Hearings, Section 810 Peace Bond Orders, Immigration Hearings and Appeals (including Detention Reviews).
We can set law enforcement up (or even the courts) with a "view only" version of the same software that our monitoring center is using to monitor released individuals. This will allow them to see (in real time) where the released individuals are at all times. An additional benefit of our ankle monitoring software is that there are 180+ different reports we can offer (some including maps) that give all data information, past as well as present during a specified time period regarding an individual. In addition, custom reports are also available, and all reports (including the custom reports) that are for the courts, and/or law enforcement are free of charge, and no software has to be downloaded.
If requested we can supply affidavits to the courts that explain the benefits that come with the use of Electronic Monitoring. In addition, we are able to offer personal expert witness testimony anywhere in Canada.
As a user-pay system, the cost may be a deciding factor for individuals in using Electronic Monitoring or not. That being the case, we help by making our prices just about the lowest in Canada, and there are no up-front or hidden costs. We also accept monthly payments if signing a lease/rental agreement, and we accept e-transfers, plus all credit and bank card payments via PayPal.
We also have a program for low income individuals. We will offer prices that are further reduced if they are using Legal Aid or can prove financial distress.
