Tagging can take the form of three distinctive strands of offender management - the first two being a Curfew Requirement within a Community Order or a stand alone Curfew Order (as described below). The third is that of Home Detention Curfew, which can be applied for br prisoners.
COMMUNITY TAGGING BY ORDER OF THE COURT
The Court has sentenced you to either a Suspended Sentence Order or a Community Order with the requirement of a Curfew. However this requirement can also be implemented as a stand alone Curfew Order. The curfew element means that you must be at certain places at specific times. This will be for between two and twelve hours at a time, dependant upon what the Court has decided One example ofthisis that the Court may have decided that you willneed to spend twelve hours of each day in your home, and this will last for the duration of the requirement.
You may also be electronically monitored, which will assist in notifying the relevant agenciesof your whereabouts. If this proves to be the case you will be given tagging equiptment by an electronic tagging company, and they wil explain to you how to use it.
As stated above the Curfew Requirement can be imposed as a stand alone element. During this time you will not necessarily be required to see a Probation Offier. However you will have contact with the electronic monitoring agency.
