Guidance for Establishing Electronic/GPS Monitoring Programs

In order to assist localities in developing monitoring programs using GPS or other technology, DCJS has developed Guidelines for Local Electronic/GPS Monitoring Programs. Localities wishing to implement a program may find additional resource information in Offender Supervision with Electronic Technology: Community Corrections Resource (2nd edition), published by the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) and the American Probation and Parole Association (APPA). This can be found on the APPA website at:
