Electronic monitoring is often seen as a prison without bars. However, when it comes to juvenile electronic monitoring, it is not considered punishment but is seen as rehabilitative. Young people who would otherwise be detained are placed on electronic monitoring which can be akin to house arrest. Violations can include missing curfew, skipping class, or not obeying parents. A juveniles poor performance can result in increased time on electronic monitoring and probation. The result is a greater penalty than if they had never been on electronic monitoring and probation. What are your thoughts? Is juvenile electric monitoring an appropriate alternative to incarceration?
