Attitudes toward Electronic Monitoring among Monitored Offenders and Criminal Justice Students.
Payne, Brian K.; Gainey, Randy R.
Journal of Offender Rehabilitation, v29 n3/4 p195-208 1999
Examines what 180 students think about electronic monitoring and compares their perceptions to those of 29 electronically-monitored offenders. Results show that students were less supportive of electronic monitoring but when asked about what offenders have to give up, they viewed the sanction more punitively than did offenders. Implications suggest that increased awareness may strengthen program support. (Author/MKA)
