We are the world’s largest provider of electronic monitoring services, monitoring over 40,000 subjects every day
Electronic monitoring (tagging) is a cost effective compliance solution for subjects at home or in the community using a variety of proven technologies and applications.
We provide a comprehensive range of services that support the work of Criminal Justice and Immigration agencies across the world. In the UK alone we monitor over 14,000 subjects.
In England and Wales we are responsible for providing electronic monitoring services within three contract areas as follows:

In Scotland we provide these services across the whole of the country.
We also monitor subjects on behalf of the UK Border Agency (UKBA) either through electronically monitored curfews or voice verification.
What is an electronically monitored curfew?
