What We Do
North Bay EM has been involved with electronic monitoring since 2007. Our service area is the San Francisco North Bay, which includes the counties of Marin, Napa, Sonoma, Contra Costa, Alameda and Solano. In these counties we have monitored clients with gang restrictions, home confinement, work only, stay away zones and alcohol restrictions. We have aligned our self with the most advanced GPS monitoring systems available. Our systems offer real time monitoring; GPS locators and most have voice communication. We can create any “Exclusion Zones” or “Inclusion Zone” along with most other special or unique conditions required by the court, parole or probation order.
All our systems work off web based tracking software. This tracking software allows easy access to the clients movements via real time tracking maps. Our programs provide instant notifications of any violations of setup parameters.
Our programs are developed to electronically monitor clients at pretrial, post conviction, home confinement, and work release and alcohol restrictions. These systems give much more surveillance than supervised OR.
The client prepays all costs for these programs before monitoring begins. Our goal is to get qualified clients out of custody and back home, saving the taxpayer and county time and money.
House Arrest Bracelet
Jails and prisons in this country are filled to maximum capacity. Room is at an all time premium in state correctional facilities and this has caused many states to find new angles of dealing with less serious offenders. Many judges have started to sentence people found guilty of various crimes to house arrest. This requires that an individual stay in his home, unless he or she has to go to work, and wear a house arrest bracelet to make sure he does so. These bracelets are special electronic monitoring devices that usually go around a person's ankle and notifies the authorities as to the exact place that person is during any given time of the day.
Some of the key features of the House Arrest Bracelet are:
- House Arrest Bracelet Features
- Geo Fencing capability
- User Interface Software Packages
- Automated Reminders for Battery Recharging
- Instant and Constant Communication Between Device and Probation Officer
- Water and Shock Resistant
- Geographic real time surveillance
- 4.5 Oz
- Medical grade strap materials
- Body temperature and Body Mass sensors
- GPS Tracking
- Designed to detect presence of alcohol
The size of house arrest bracelets can vary but it's usually the size of a large watch and is snugly secured to the sides of your ankle with a set of snapping rivets. These bracelets are designed to be very difficult to remove and will sound an alarm to the proper people in charge of the convicted person if it detects its being tampered with in any way.
Like a global positioning system, aka GPS, a house arrest bracelet transmits and receives electronic signals. A constant flow of positioning data is sent to the base where all of the people under house arrest within a specific district, country, city, or state are being tracked. When sentence is passed the judge will stipulate where the inmate is to be confined. He will be told where he or she can and cannot go depending on the extent of the crime, his criminal history, and family obligations. They are not allowed to leave their stated detained area. If they choose to do so they must get the approval of their parole officer or face being incarcerated in prison.
Keep in mind that this option is only applicable to criminals that have been convicted of less serious offenses. They were first put into use during the early 1980s as an alternative way to lesson the population of jail systems that were just starting to fill up to the brim and since have become more mainstream in states with little to no extra capacity for small time offenders.
With this ankle monitoring device you are notified of all important events such as potential violations and low battery life. One of the main key points of this device is its active GPS monitoring. Supervising and parole officers can take appropriate actions much sooner compared to other similar devices because it's all "real time" and information is transmitted is a much shorter time frame.
The BlueTag Active device can also provide authorities with up-to-date real time information about a person's activities including deliberate blocking of GPS signals, alcohol consumption, and if the enrolled is leaving the premises without per-approval.
All information is transmitted to VeriTracks and data is submitted once every ten minutes using a nationwide cellular network. Supervising officers receive can set themselves up to receive via fax, email, page, or text message, whichever they prefer.
