Key Highlight: First electronic monitor

Case Studies



The first electronic monitor was used in the court of Judge Jack Love on February 12, 1984 in Albuquerque. This somewhat romanticized history of the invention of the electronic monitor, written by its inventor, Robert Gable, provides some historical background on the device and some pics of early ankle monitors.
