Alcohol and Location Monitoring for Probation & Parole in Ontario
As a term of probation or parole, monitoring is a powerful tool for protecting society and facilitating the offender’s successful reintegration into the community.
Offering probation with monitoring will help the Crown and defence resolve more cases without the need for a trial.
The Crown or defence may see it as desirable to include probation with monitoring terms as part of their proposed sentence.
Monitoring creates opportunities for a non-jail sentence or shorter jail sentence. For the Crown, monitoring provides a robust tool for confirming compliance, protecting the public and rehabilitating the offender.
