Ankle monitors, also known as electronic monitoring devices or EMs, are typically provided and monitored by law enforcement or corrections agencies. These devices are designed to be tamper-resistant, and charging them without the proper equipment and authorization is neither recommended nor legally allowed. Attempting to charge an ankle monitor without the proper charger and permission may be considered a violation of the terms of your monitoring agreement and could lead to legal consequences.
If you have concerns or questions about your ankle monitor, it’s essential to contact your supervising agency or the organization responsible for your electronic monitoring program. They will be able to provide you with the necessary guidance, including information on how to properly charge and maintain the ankle monitor within the bounds of the law.
It’s important to adhere to the terms and conditions of your monitoring program to ensure compliance with the law and avoid any potential legal issues. Unauthorized tampering with or modifying an ankle monitor can result in serious consequences, including additional legal charges or penalties. Always follow the guidance and instructions provided by your supervising agency or the organization responsible for your electronic monitoring.
