Location Monitoring Program

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.
