Pre-Trial

Marion County (where Indianapolis is located) has the highest levels of pretrial electronic monitoring usage in the U.S.Between 2017-19 Indianapolis had more than 8,300 people on pretrial monitors and 14,300 on post-trial monitors. By early 2020 more than 4,000 people were on a monitor at any given moment. Individuals paid a $50 set-up fee and $14 a day to be on the monitor.

Resistance


In 2018 Indiana Against E-Carceration launched the first statewide organization to combat the use of EM. Even Rick Snyder, the head of the Indianapolis Fraternal Order of Police, criticized the use of electronic monitoring.
