In this workshop, we'll explore ways to use technology that opens the door to monitoring more participants in the community, reducing recidivism, and improving outcomes. Among the wide-ranging topics to be covered is the role of communication, electronic location tracking, remote alcohol testing, and random drug testing. Participants will be given useful guidance and will gain insight into ways they can reduce costs while getting better results.
