The Federal Location Monitoring Program, is designed to provide U.S. Probation Officers with guidance in supervising people ordered by the U.S. District Court to undergo location monitoring as a condition of either probation, parole, or supervised release.
Location monitoring technology (LMT) provides officers with broad operational considerations for purposes of mitigating defendant/offender risks, providing supervision structure, and detecting various patterns of behavior. The location monitoring program is a paradigm shift as it relates to the purpose of electronic monitoring, emphasizing an enhanced community supervision tool.
The Location Monitoring technology can create supervision efficiencies by providing a better allocation of time and therefore avoid under-supervising high-risk defendants/offenders and over-supervising low-risk defendants/offenders.
