Stigma Bracelet? –
May 19, 2020 – The scheme has already been trialled in Humberside, Lincolnshire, North Yorkshire and London.
During pilot schemes those who wore the tags were alcohol free 97% of the time, the Ministry of Justice said.
It says it expects 2,300 tags to be fitted to offenders every year.
Crime, policing and justice minister Kit Malthouse said the new tagging system will not only punish offenders but “can help turn their lives around”.
The measures will be rolled out this winter.
