Electronic Monitoring System; It is a method used in the execution of decisions that enables suspects, accused or convicts to be monitored, kept under surveillance and control in the society with electronic methods and tools, and supports the protection of the victim and the society. As part of the overall objective to prevent and reduce incidents of crime, the project aims to create an effective and functional electronic monitoring system in Turkey in line with European standards. Electronic Clamps are also used in the European Union for social and responsibility tracking purposes for students, in addition to monitoring and detecting defendants and convicts.
Fully domestic system will be used in January 2021
Product development processes have started as of February 2020, and 3 development versions are being developed with the rapid prototyping method. Devices that do not need an additional integration period due to the activities carried out with the principle of continuous integration will start to be used on 1 November 2020. The Electronic Monitoring System, which will operate in parallel with the system currently in use until December 31, 2020, will completely replace the system in use as of January 1, 2021.
