Electronic Monitoring Unit

Electronic Monitoring Unit (EMU)

The Electronic Monitoring Unit operates a Radio Frequency (RF) home confinement program for approximately 400 offenders under supervision. With the use of electronic ankle-mounted transmitters and home-based receivers that provide automatic alerts, the parole officers in the Electronic Monitoring Unit help ensure these offenders remain under home confinement at all times, except in cases where their conditions of supervision allow them outside at specific times for work, education or related activities.

The Electronic Monitoring Unit also operates New Jersey's Global Positioning System (GPS) monitoring program for New Jersey's offenders whose case require monitoring, in cooperation with the Sex Offender Management Unit.
