Finding suitable housing

People can complete a number of sentences while they stay at home and offenders may need to check with a probation officer if where they are staying is suitable.

If someone is on an electronically monitored sentence or order they have to:

  • propose a suitable and stable address for where they’ll be staying
  • make sure the address is accessible to the monitoring company and their probation officer.

Unsuitable living arrangements

Some places aren’t suitable to have electronic monitoring equipment, for example:

  • a sleep-out
  • a garage
  • a caravan
  • camping grounds
