Supposedly, in the 1980’s an American judge was inspired by the villains ‘electronic radar device’ and thought it could be used for the greater good and set companies the task of creating a ‘tag’.
This mandate inspired companies worldwide to invest in the creation of devices that ensure wearers follow the conditions of their release and protect victims.
Since then, electronic monitoring has been a crucial to providing alternatives to incarceration, thereby minimising strain on the prison system and enabling rehabilitation by bringing offenders back to their families and into work.
So where to from here? As with any innovation company there’s always a demand for new and intelligent devices, and for 2022, Attenti is bringing new designs and solutions to the table.
I am excited for the next steps we’re taking to provide electronic monitoring devices which will enable Attenti to continue its journey to create a safer and more secure society.
