ABSTRACT
The article discusses the purposes of location monitoring as a technology to verify or enforce a condition of supervision and provide an officer with information about a defendant/offender's location patterns. Location monitoring can serve as an alternative incarceration in a probation sentence or as a punitive tool of the court in post-conviction supervision. It indicates that its use is effective if the officer uses the given information appropriately since it is the officer's supervision that creates the true outcome and not the technology.
