Electronic monitoring has recently entered a new phase in Belgium by introducing it at the pre-trial stage. In fact, GPS-tracking, as supportive technology, has potentially replaced remand custody. From a controlling perspective, GPS-tracking is perceived to be remarkable as it allows constant monitoring of subjects' movements in real-time. However, this crucial advantage of GPS-tracking is heavily underused in Belgium. This paper describes the advent of GPS-tracking in Belgium by situating it within broader penal policy and the existing application of electronic monitoring in Belgium. The application and management of GPS-tracking will also be explained and its possible advantages and drawbacks discussed.
