Home Detention Curfew
Some prisoners with a sentence of three months or more, but less than four years, may be placed on home detention curfew after they have served part of their sentence. Prisoners must spend a set period in prison before they are eligible for home detention curfew. For example, for a sentence of four to eighteen months, the period is one quarter of the term of the sentence. The curfew is enforced by electronic tagging and offenders can be recalled to prison if they do not comply with the curfew, if they cannot be electronically monitored, or if there is a need to protect the public from serious harm.
To qualify for Home Detention Curfew you must apply. It will then be a decision of the Probation Service and the Prison whether or not any risk you present can be successfully monitored by tagging should you be released under this system. If you apply, you should have an explanation as to why you do not qualify. If you feel you are eligible we can provide you with legal advice as to whether or not it might be subject to Judicial Review.
