Criminal Cases

Bail and Conditional Sentences

Over 1000 people across Canada have been released on bail when including our program as part of their plan.

We offer GPS, radio-frequency and alcohol monitoring. We can help you determine which type of monitoring is best suited to a particular case.

Proposing our programs as part of a plan for bail or a conditional sentence is easy. We provide counsel with a court-ready package of documents explaining our program. In many courts where our programs are well-known, this will be all that is required. If necessary, we are available to testify.

We do not assess eligibility, we do not need to visit the home in advance, and the home does not need to have a landline.

We know the extensive body of case law about electronic monitoring and can help counsel identify relevant decisions.

Before deciding to propose our program as part of a plan, counsel, the person to be monitored, and all sureties should review our documents carefully to be sure everyone understands how the program works and the commitments that will be required.

Some companies offer private monitoring as a sideline to other lines of business. At Recovery Science, one case at a time, we’ve built the gold standard of privately available monitoring programs in Canada.

Accessing monitoring solutions on a case by case basis

Government agencies can access any of our monitoring options on a case-by-case basis, giving them greater flexibility than traditional procurement contracts to more fully achieve their policy goals. We will create customized reporting protocols to meet the needs of each case.

Consulting

When a police service, specialty court, or ministry is considering establishing a new electronic monitoring program or improving an existing program, we can help.

Our insights and advice comes from having built our own program, which is comparable in size to any government-operated program in Canada, from the ground up.  We’ve used the products of multiple manufacturers, established programs using a variety of technologies, and adapted the way our programs operate to a diverse range of legal and practical contexts, from bail to probation, from acrimonious child custody disputes to supporting the constructive work of child protection agencies and treatment providers.

We can help you determine how to make monitoring technology and the information it produces give your agency the most value in support of its policy objectives.
