For those sentenced adults who qualify for community supervision, GPS technology offers an alternative to incarceration or detention while maintaining enrollee accountability and public safety. If these individuals remain in the community rather than serving time in a secure or non-secure facility (e.g., jail, prison, detention center), they can continue their responsibilities with employment and/or education. Because these individuals stay in their home community, they remain close to family and their circle of friends, which can help them stay crime-free.
BLUtag is an ideal tool to help supervising agents monitor the enrollee’s compliance with the terms of his/her supervision. It’s easy to use and requires enrollees to complete only one task each day: recharge the battery for one hour. Hundreds of government agencies and independent service providers throughout the U.S. use BLUtag to track the locations and movements of adult enrollees.
