"At the initiative of the Ministry of Justice of Georgia, a new mechanism for electronic control of probationers will be launched. Probbox system created using modern technologies will control and register probationers without municipal affiliation," Minister Rati Bregadze stated today at the presentation of the 10-year action plan of the agency.
According to him, the Probbox system will be equipped with video recording and fingerprinting equipment. Asking a probationer to Probbox, as well as his/her schedule violation, is automatically reflected in the case officer database. Probbox will be located in homes of justice, community centers, and local municipalities across the country.
"The new mechanism of electronic control of probationers will make it easier for convicts to fulfill their obligations and at the same time save human resources," Bregadze added.
