What is GPS monitoring?

GPS stands for Global Positioning System. GPS monitoring is an ankle-monitoring device that you wear and it tracks your movement 24/7. If you are on GPS, you could have a curfew, house arrest, areas that you cannot be in, if ordered by the court. It is your responsibility to keep the GPS unit charged. You will be given all the equipment to be successful on the GPS.
