This system is good in so many ways to allow our love ones to come home early instead of being incarcerated and we thank them for this being in place.  But it has been used to quickly violate those released due to a default monitor that shuts off on fully charged or it gave the wrong location when they were in the right place.

The other is they get violated for not being able to pay a couple of dollars instead of being given an adequate amount of time/ extension to pay it or complete community hours until payment is in full because everybody's situation is different.

So instead of some of them being so quick to file technical small violations to send them back to jail or prisons for several extra months or years they should be given a properly working machine that gives the accurate location and it actually works.  This gives them a chance to complete their time on probation or conditional release with it being terminated successfully with no issues to go back for because no crime has been committed.  Also if at work and they are needed to stay late their clock-out slip with their name, date, hours and time should also be sufficient enough not to be sent to jail that night or day as a technical violation from law enforcement, probation or conditional release because they were doing something constructive with their life.
