BI Electronic Monitoring Offices
Criminal justice agencies are responsible for supervising community-based offenders. BI can support these supervision efforts through a BI Electronic Monitoring Office. These offices are based in your local community. They offer a range of electronic supervision technologies to meet different offender risks. They also provide many optional services based on an agency's needs and budget.
A community-based location
A BI Electronic Monitoring office includes a local office, professional staff, and a wide range of electronic monitoring technologies. BI provides complete equipment installation and removal services and around-the-clock monitoring services and support. When an agency refers an individual to a BI Electronic Monitoring office, BI conducts an intake and orientation, enters relevant client data in a database accessible by both BI and the agency, and installs the electronic monitoring equipment. Schedules, curfew and other program parameters are also established.
Full range of technology
No matter what the offender risk, BI has a technology to fit your need:
- Global Positioning System (GPS) offender tracking can verify where a person travels throughout the day. BI offers GPS tracking systems such as BI ExacuTrack® One, BI ExacuTrack® AT, and BI ExacuTrack® to ensure an offender stays within certain boundaries and avoids restricted areas
- Radio frequency-based systems can reliably and accurately monitor curfews and schedules
- Alcohol compliance systems ensure offenders maintain sobriety
- Equipment-free systems offer reliable, cost-effective monitoring for low-risk offenders
Supported by the premiere national monitoring center
All of BI's technologies are supported by BI Monitoring Operations, the most advanced call center for monitoring services nationwide. Our Monitoring Operations staff and systems have successfully monitored more than 4 million offenders. Violation alerts can be forwarded to BI offices or supervising officers via fax, email, phone, or page.
To help defray the cost of a BI Electronic Monitoring office, many agencies implement an offender pay component. As part of the intake process, individuals are assessed a daily fee. Costs are based on agency parameters. This money can help the agency to serve more offenders or divert the funding to other valuable public safety programs.
Additional EM office options
Additional options available through a BI Electronic Monitoring office include alcohol and drug testing, frequent check-ins, home or work site visits, reports to courts, referrals to community resources, and collection of fines, fees and restitution.
