Add To Calendar

Traditional technology for monitoring pre-trial defendants and post-conviction offenders released to the community are ankle bracelets and “robo” calls, tools designed to enforce probation terms and detect violations.  But in March 2014, U.S. District Court Chief Judge Ann Aiken (D. Ore.) pleaded with developers to create better, smarter, more supportive tools, and now “there’s an app for that.”  Smartphone monitoring offers defendants, offenders, and community supervisors new tools for success, using ubiquitous mobile devices.  Join this session to learn how your probationers can access mobile tools that are less conspicuous, less disruptive, cheaper, and far more effective at reducing recidivism.
