Full disclosure, I was on electronic monitoring for almost two years after leaving incarceration. I hated it.
I personally preferred monitoring to being in prison, but it was still brutal, humiliating, and frustrating on a regular basis.
What is even more troubling is that there really is very little research suggesting it is anything other than a placebo and in some cases can actually INCREASE recidivism and technical violations resulting in incarceration (at great cost to communities both in terms of loss of labor and in terms of the costs of incarceration).
This recent paper from Illinois breaks down some of the problems of the wide use of electronic monitoring as a so-called “alternative to incarceration.”
