Effective practice guide: Electronic monitoring delivered well  (PDF, 844 kB)

Based on our thematic inspection of the use of electronic monitoring as a tool for the Probation Service in reducing reoffending and managing risk (2022).

Contents: This guide provides an overview of the sentence and requirement types that can have electronic monitoring applied, with details of which technology can be used. There is then a summary of the key themes which arose from the Penal Reform Solutions report and a PowerPoint presentation exploring how electronic monitoring can be delivered well.

The guide then explores electronic monitoring in practice through cases studies and reflective questions, and offers key takeaways for practitioners.

We conclude by highlighting factors in managing electronic monitoring sentences which meet our standards.
