Electronic Monitoring Unit

CMPD has partnered with the Mecklenburg County District Attorneys Office, the NC Division of Community Corrections, and the court system to develop two court-ordered programs designed to reduce violent crime and help prevent recidivism. CMPD's Electronic Monitoring Unit in the Special Operations Division oversees both programs.

Electronic Monitoring Program
Electronic monitoring may be imposed as a condition of court-ordered pre-trial release or as part of a sentence upon conviction for criminals who are high risks to community safety. The types of crime most frequently targeted include robbery, auto theft, burglary and felony assault, and offenders are given territorial restrictions and curfews.

CMPD uses electronic monitoring as a means to ensure adherence. CMPD believes that the application of this technology, coupled with an effort to overlay offender location data with crime incident data, will both deter recidivism and enable CMPD to better identify those choosing to continue engaging in criminal behavior.

The Offender Mapping gives our unit the current locations of all electronically-monitored offenders. This helps to determine the offender's location and vicinity to crime hotspots or active crime scenes. With our current mapping of the offenders on Electronic Monitoring, we can overlay that information on crime hotspot or active crime maps to make the necessary connections.
