Tampa Bay Monitoring offers help for Domestic Violence and Stalking Victims

Tampa Bay Monitoring is often requested to place GPS monitors on those who are charged with violence or stalking.  Along with the order for the defendant to wear the monitor, a judge may set an area of exclusion around the victim’s home, work place, etc. which is meant to keep them away.  Should the defendant violate this order, Tampa Bay Monitoring will try to contact the victim to get some basic information so that we can notify them as well as law enforcement.

If you are a victim of domestic violence, stalking, or assault and have not been assigned a victim’s advocate or been given a safety plan we  strongly urge that you download this one developed by the National Center on Domestic Violence.

As a matter of policy when tasked with the responsibility of monitoring a defendant we always contact the victim to let them know who we are and the conditions of release so that if they cut their bracelet or violate the area of exclusion that victim be notified. We also provide a list of victim’s advocates available in Pinellas County and urge you to contact the one most appropriate for you:
