Electronic Monitoring (EM) can be defined as the use of tamper-proof electronic device that transmits signals to correctional authorities to monitor offenders. This enables them to determine whether the offender wearing the device is abiding by the particular conditions imposed upon them as part of the sentence. Whilst EM has limited use in Australia, it is available for pre-trial, primary and post-sentencing and for custodial monitoring.
