What are house arrest and electronic monitoring?
If a person is on house arrest, it means that they are confined to their home. Also known as community control, it means that they are confined to their home and cannot leave without the permission from their probation officer. A person on house arrest can go to work typically, they can go to doctors appointments and things that are necessary, but other than that, they would be confined to their home. Sometimes a person on house arrest will also be subject to electronic monitoring, but not necessarily in every case.
