The use of electronic monitoring in the criminal justice system has grown exponentially in recent years. Despite this rapid expansion, little is known about how this technology is being used on youth. This report is the first to examine juvenile electronic monitoring rules and policies across an entire state.
The report represents a joint effort by U.C. Berkeley School of Law’s Samuelson Law, Technology & Public Policy Clinic and the East Bay Community Law Center. It reviews juvenile electronic monitoring program rules and policies in all California counties that use electronic monitoring on youth (51 of 58 do so).
