(1) The Department of Corrections shall electronically monitor an offender sentenced to community control when the court has imposed electronic monitoring as a condition of community control.
(2) Any offender placed under supervision who violates the terms and conditions of supervision and is restored to supervision may be supervised by means of an electronic monitoring device or system if ordered by the court.
(3) For those offenders being electronically monitored, the Department of Corrections shall develop procedures to determine, investigate, and report the offender’s noncompliance with the terms and conditions of sentence 24 hours per day. All reports of noncompliance shall be immediately investigated by a probation officer.
(4) The Department of Corrections may contract with local law enforcement agencies to assist in the location and apprehension of offenders who are in noncompliance as reported by the electronic monitoring system. This contract is intended to provide the department a means for providing immediate investigation of noncompliance reports, especially after normal office hours.
(5) Any person being electronically monitored by the department as a result of being placed on supervision shall pay the department for the electronic monitoring services as provided in s. 948.09(2).
(6) For probationers, community controllees, or conditional releasees who have current or prior convictions for violent or sexual offenses, the department, in carrying out a court or commission order to electronically monitor an offender, must use a system that actively monitors and identifies the offender’s location and timely reports or records the offender’s presence near or within a crime scene or in a prohibited area or the offender’s departure from specified geographic limitations. Procurement of electronic monitoring services under this subsection shall be by competitive procurement in accordance with s. 287.057.
