Electronic monitoring during parole

If you have been arrested or convicted of a crime in New Jersey and part of your sentence includes time in jail or prison, you may want to learn about your options for parole at some point. As explained by the State of New Jersey, there are many different types of parole and multiple groups that manage parole in the state.

Some people may be required to be monitored while on parole. If so, they may be managed by the state's parole group referred to as the Electronic Monitoring Unit. Two different types of monitoring are used based upon the individual scenario. Both types of monitoring require that you wear a bracelet around your ankle. This bracelet communicates with other pieces of technology to allowed the unit to monitor you.

A global positioning system may be used if the courts want to be able to track your whereabouts at all times. The Sex Offender Monitoring Unit may also be involved with people who must wear these bracelets. A system that leverages radio frequency technology may be used if it is only necessary for the courts to know when you come and go from your home. Generally you may be restricted to stay at home except for specific trips such as to go to work, medical appointments or court appointments.

If you would like to learn more about how people on parole may be monitored by parole officers, please feel free to visit the parolee electronic monitoring page of our New Jersey criminal defense website.
