GPS-Electronic Monitoring and Contemporary Penology: A Case Study of US GPS-Electronic Monitoring Programmes

Authors


Abstract

Abstract: Criminologists have noted a significant reorientation of criminal justice policy. Initially this reorientation was most dramatically articulated by Feeley and Simon (1992), who suggested that penality has shifted from the ‘modern’ to ‘new’ penology.

This research represents an empirically-based attempt to locate GPS-electronic monitoring within this threefold model.
