TEL AVIV, Israel, November 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Elmo-Tech Ltd., the global provider of leading offender monitoring technologies, launches the http://www.addstrain.com website. The website's objective is to educate criminal justice and welfare administrations, as well as women and anti-violence against women organizations on the potential use of remote monitoring and tracking technologies as deterrence and enforcement tools in the global effort to curb domestic violence.
Remote monitoring, a proven technology tool is harnessed to build up the sense of security of victims, while providing better supervision of aggressors' compliance with court orders. This is achieved through the creation of security layers around victims wherever they are and parallel notification layers around the aggressor. Enforcement agencies are provided early alerts to potentially violent encounters between the victim and the aggressor.
The information is offered further to the successful implementation of such technology in Spain, where a national program was launched by the Ministry of Equality. This program continues two such existing local programs in Madrid and in the Balearic Islands, launched in 2005 and 2007 respectively.
Upon the launch of the Community of Madrid program, the former Vice President and Counselor for Justice and Interior of the Community of Madrid, Mr. Alfredo Prada Presa stated: An extensive evaluation of the programme and the technology configuration was concluded successfully. We now move to extend the programme for the benefit of the Madrid Community residents. We call upon our neighboring European countries and the European commission, to consider wider implementation of similar programmes to deter domestic aggressors.
Elmo-Tech's Chief Executive Officer Dagan Sadeh said: We are very proud to be able to offer a viable tool for the global effort to minimize gender based violence. With as many as 30%-60% of restraining and protection orders commonly breached, their enforcement is proving a challenging mission. To that end, our technology offers meaningful support to enforcement agencies and victims. We will continue our cooperation with administration globally and hoping to developed more such programs.
