Products for Public Safety

  • Electronic Monitoring

    Keep close tabs on detainees under house arrest, parolees and others – while freeing your people for other tasks – with electronic monitoring systems from 3M. We offer a variety of scalable and customizable solutions to help keep your charges on the straight and narrow.

Applications for Public Safety

  • House Arrest

    House arrest electronic monitoring uses radio frequency (RF) or GPS location technology to monitor the movement of offenders under home confinement. Electronic monitoring helps control costs by automating many routine supervision and recording tasks.

  • Parole & Probation

    Everyone deserves a second chance. Electronic monitoring for parole & probation gives offenders the opportunity to reunite with family, find employment, seek medical treatment and engage in other approved activities while remaining supervised.
