Maintaining constant every other day contact with their parole officer would force the ex-convict to stay accountable for their actions. With electronic monitoring, the whereabouts of the ex-con are known at all times. However, they would not meet with their administrators face to face as often.

I recall being 5 years old when I was sleeping with my older brother and my father came home drunk and out of his mind, arguing and fighting with my mother.
