Electronic monitoring of accused and convicted persons in Slovak republic will, as an innovative service, allow broader and more flexible usage of alternative punishments. It is, for example, house arrest, compliance with the ban to approach to another person and/or location, compliance with stay during designated hours at workplace or monitoring the consumption of alcoholic beverages, narcotics, etc.
These punishments are significantly more effective in rectification of convicted persons than placing them in a detention facility. The use of electronic services could also cover areas such as domestic violence, petty theft, harassment, improper behaviour in neighbourhood, and so on.
The electronic monitoring system can basically take place in all three stages of criminal justice, which is: before a court decision on punishment, as part of an alternative punishment for imprisonment and after the release as part of probation supervision.
