Domestic violence offenders return and attack their victims all too often. Protection orders alone may not be enough to prevent a repeat attack. The Domestic Violence Monitoring Program from Sentinel gives victims extra peace of mind and law enforcement another tool in this important effort.
A POWERFUL PROGRAM THAT HELPS INTENDED VICTIMS AND THE AUTHORITIES THAT PROTECT THEM
Advanced GPS monitoring technology tracks the location of both the offender and their intended victim. Through the Domestic Violence Monitoring Program, the victim voluntarily carries a small GPS tracking device. The offender is court-ordered to wear a GPS tracking device at all times. Combining data from each of the tracking devices, Sentinel’s proprietary SentinelDNA monitoring software creates a mobile exclusion zone around the targeted individual. Should the offender approach within a preset distance, from thousands of feet to hundreds of miles, an alert is sent. Specially trained operators in Sentinel’s 24/7/365 National Monitoring Center notify the targeted individual and law enforcement. An emergency safety plan can be executed and contact with the offender avoided.
Court systems that require domestic violence offenders to wear GPS tracking devices as a condition of release find this program extremely valuable. If the mobile exclusion is breached, the victim is given appropriate guidance and ample time to get to a safe and secure location. The offender is tracked and can be held accountable for their actions.
