Victim Tracking Unit


G4S Monitoring develops and manufactures electronic tagging devices for the monitoring of offenders, ensuring compliance with curfews. G4S approached The Design Unit after identifying the need for a new product which would aid and support victims of crime.


Issued to victims with exclusion orders in place against an offender, the handheld device monitors the position of the offender in relation to the victim. If the exclusion order is breached, the system notifies both the victim and Police, providing victims with a direct phone line to the Police and real-time information about the offender´┐Żs location.


From initial concept generation to manufacturing detail design, The Design Unit worked in parallel with the electronics development team at G4S to ensure a compact and robust solution.
