Comprehensive program helps intended victims and the authorities that protect them

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.

Here’s how it works

Advanced GPS monitoring technology tracks the location of both the offender and their intended victim. The victim voluntarily carries a small GPS tracking device.  The offender is court-ordered to wear a GPS tracking device at all times.

Sentinel’s proprietary SentinelDNA monitoring software combines data from each of the tracking devices to create 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 and an emergency safety plan can be executed.

Specially trained operators in Sentinel’s 24/7/365 National Monitoring Center notify the targeted individual and law enforcement.  The victim is given the appropriate guidance and ample time to get to a safe and secure location. The offender’s location is tracked and they can be held accountable for their actions. Contact between intended victim and offender is avoided.


The Domestic Violence Monitoring Program is backed by years of documented success. It helps law enforcement, the court system and – most importantly – victims. This program provides:

  • 24/7/365 monitoring centers with specially trained operators
  • State-of-the-art GPS monitoring technology
  • Tamper-resistant tracking of offenders and their proximity to possible victims
