Solutions for Pretrial Agencies
Expanding supervision capacity with technology
Decisions to release or detain pretrial defendants carry important consequences for the accused, your agency, and community safety. When an agency is charged with supervising a defendant released to community supervision, it focuses on decreasing failures to appear and risk to the community. BI can support these goals with a range of proven options.
Supporting an Electronic Monitoring program
BI supports some of the largest pretrial service agencies in the nation with electronic monitoring products and services. BI has more than a dozen different electronic supervision technologies, including GPS tracking, house arrest systems, alcohol compliance systems and more. These systems support agencies to supervise pretrial defendants who pose different levels of risk while they await trial. BI helps agencies set up or modify an existing electronic monitoring program.
BI Electronic Monitoring Offices
Some pretrial agencies may prefer to direct a defendant to a BI Electronic Monitoring office. This solution includes a local office operated by professional BI 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. An offender pay component can be added to greatly reduce program costs.
