Abstract

The policy intention to introduce electronic monitoring (EM) in Scotland for young people was first indicated in the then Scottish Executive’s document Putting our communities first: A Strategy for tackling Antisocial Behaviour (2003: 29). While the policy agenda in relation to youth justice was significantly different in 2003 to that which pertains today, with its emphasis on tackling “persistent young offenders”, the Scottish Executive did note with respect to EM: “no-one wants to restrict a young person’s liberty lightly. It is a serious matter to consider such an intervention and would only be used to tackle serious issues” (2003: 30).
