Pride, Inc., Program: An Evaluation of 5 Years of Electronic Monitoring: A Reprint from “Federal Probation”
J. Robert Lilly (au)
Electronically monitored (EM) home confinement began with a tiny experiment in Albuquerque, NM, in 1983. Its growth around the country was driven in part by a conviction that jail is not the best alternative for certain offenders, in part by worsening problems of overcrowding, in part by aggressive marketing, & in part by the lure of technology. There are various types of EM devices, usually in the form of a tamperproof bracelet worn on ankle or wrist. This study focuses upon the program developed by Pride, Inc., of West Palm Beach, FL, the nonprofit corp. which in Dec. 1984 set up the first continuously operating EM program. Data covers the first 415 cases, which comprise all cases from the beginning of the program in late 1984 through all cases closed by Nov. 1, 1989. Most were sentenced to a probation term of 1 year, begining with a period of “front end” EM home confinement designed to provide close control in the early stage.
