Ankle monitors are often seen as a less severe alternative to incarceration, freeing up space in already overcrowded prisons while keeping an eye on the offenders in question.
However, a recent podcast from Reset has looked at the many flaws of the technology behind the bracelets, shedding light on how far monitors have to go before they are seen as a legitimate alternative to jailtime.
In some cases, ankle monitors can lose their GPS signal, forcing the wearers to step outside until the light goes green again which can disrupt work.
This sense of disruption doesn’t end there though, as there have been reports of young offenders being kicked out of class after their monitors wouldn’t stop beeping.
Users also often have to spend extended periods of time tethered to wall sockets as they charge the ankle monitors. While the necessity of ankle monitors already sparks debate, there are actually flaws that must be ironed out before that debate can even take place.
