Section 52: Community sentences: electronic monitoring of requirements

118.Section 52 makes provision for a requirement for the electronic monitoring of any other requirement of a community order. This provision might be used to require an offender to register his attendance at a particular place, for example. Once again, these powers will not be available to a court until the Secretary of State has notified it of the availability of the powers

119.Subsections (3) and (4) make clear that, where the co-operation of a person other than the offender is required for electronic monitoring to take place, the requirement for electronic monitoring cannot be imposed without that person’s consent.

120.Provision is made for making a person responsible for the monitoring, with a power for the Secretary of State to make rules for regulating both the electronic monitoring and the function of responsible persons.

121.Subsections (7) to (10) make clear the definition of the ‘relevant area’ in the various instances in which a community sentence might be electronically monitored.
