Electronic Monitoring Hotspot Map

MediaJustice’s Challenging E-Carceration project has been researching national trends and local struggles involving electronic monitoring (EM) and other punitive technologies for several years. This map highlights our findings. Hover and click on states for information on how e-carceration is being implemented there, and how people are fighting to abolish it. You can read more about EM and COVID-19 in our special bibliography, or get more information from the complete list of MediaJustice’s publications on e-carceration. We also have a list of EM companies for your reference. If there is something in your community that should be added to the map, you can let us know by filling out our map intake form.

For more than a decade, families have been calling for relief from the high price of staying connected to their loved ones behind bars. From the price of a simple phone call to the exploitative charges for video visitations, families are often forced to choose between other needs—like food and power—and regular contact. Meanwhile, the phone providers and the correctional facilities are making huge profits by maintaining these electronic barriers.

Drop Police Tech

Law enforcement agencies nationwide are adapting to the digital age in ways that extend the powers of the United States’ already racially biased criminal legal system. We demand more transparency and less policing.
