When Romanian Authorities will be ready G4S can provide any type of electronic monitoring, reducing the pressure created by the actual poor imprisonment condition. G4S is the world's leading provider of electronic monitoring services, monitoring tens of thousands of subjects globally every day.
Electronically monitored curfew orders have been used throughout the criminal justice system in the UK since the late 1990s as a community service condition, as a condition of release from prison, or in conjunction with bail imposed by the court.
A person (subject) under curfew must stay at home (or another specified place) during certain hours. A subject is fitted with an electronic tag and a Home Monitoring Unit is placed in their home to check they are keeping to their curfew hours.
In the UK, G4S provides electronic monitoring services in both Scotland and Northern Ireland. Electronic monitoring services are subject to rigorous inspection and accountability in the UK. On demand, a list of relevant reports, academic studies and G4S submissions relating to electronic monitoring is available.
