We currently have Regional Managers (retired law enforcement officers and military personnel in good standing) that will schedule appointments and install the GPS Ankle Bracelets in other parts of the state.
Court Orders issued by Judges must be taken seriously. When a Judge approves Judicial Options.Com to provide offender-paid EM (House Arrest) Services to an individual, please be aware that our committment and obligation is to the Judge and the Court.
The Judge has every right to issue a Warrant for your Arrest if you fail to comply to his/her Court Orders and fail to pay your fees.
The Letter of Completion will not be released proving the time was served unless all Terms and Conditions of the Court Order and our EM Contract are met.
