3M Electronic Monitoring banner

Monitoring technologies can help alleviate the top three challenges facing criminal justice systems today: Overcrowding, budget issues, and high reoffending rates and other social considerations. 3M™ Electronic Monitoring solutions help cut costs, free up prison cells and create operational efficiencies.

According to numerous reports and studies Alternatives To Incarceration (ATI) programmes for minor and non-violent offenders, help displace substantial prison sentences and associated costs. Many of these same studies show that non-custodial sentences can be more effective in reducing relapse and reoffending than prison sentences. Success hinges on robust monitoring, with presence and location verification solutions to help ensure offenders comply with court orders.

3M Electronic Monitoring can tailor a full featured, technology-based solution that is cost-effective, simple to operate, supports ATI goals and helps protect the community. Some of the available components include:

ATI programmes help cut costs. That’s especially important today, when criminal justice administrations globally face serious budget challenges. The annual per-person-served costs for monitoring solutions to support non-custodial sentences are substantially less than the annual cost per prison inmate.
