Why is a GPS required
Judges can order GPS monitoring for defendants who are released on bond, serving a sentence, or as a sanction for treatment to court participants. Judges also have the ability to enforce monitoring restrictions including, but not limited to house arrest, curfews, and even exclusion zones within certain areas.

Spend Less Time in Jail
Jail is the last place that anyone wants to spend any more time than they have to. Many have stated that the experience of being in jail in the first place completely changed them and made them view the world in entirely new ways. Any person charged with a crime will immediately want to ask for bail to get out of jail and fight their case from the safety and comfort of their own home.
Interestingly, the court system uses GPS monitoring as a tool of both negotiation and for keeping tabs on defendants that come before it. In some cases, a judge may order a GPS ankle bracelet as part of an agreement to allow bail for a defendant who may be considered something of a flight risk. The court may also rule it necessary to monitor those that have been charged for a particular crime.
Helping Those with Few Resources
As previously shown above, there are many instances when courts find it reasonable to apply GPS monitoring devices to suspects that have been charged or even to those who have been convicted of crimes. However, the most common use of GPS monitoring devices in our modern justice system comes from suspects requesting the application of these devices themselves.
You might wonder who could possibly want to have an ankle monitor placed on them. A judge may be moved to lower the bail amount or even eliminate it entirely if a defendant agrees to wear a GPS monitoring device as a condition of release.
This works with some judges because the whole point of the bail system in the first place is to secure a guarantee that the defendant will appear before the court. Bail money usually serves that purpose, but a GPS monitoring system may assist in bond reduction.
Our GPS monitoring systems are frequently requested by those looking for a way to get out of jail as quickly as possible.
