Advanced Systems that offer the Ultimate View
Never before has the tracking of offenders been so advanced, effective and affordable.
GPS, the key component of our systems, is the latest satellite technology available. It is the
most effective system on earth for pinpointing exact locations.
Unlike more conventional "house arrest" products used today, our systems uses SMART®
(Satellite Monitoring And Remote Tracking) to assist parole officers in tracking offenders
closely and effectively, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
On any given day, 5 million offenders in the U.S. are either on probation, parole or some
other form of community supervision. These same offenders account for 33% of violent
crimes. These staggering statistics lead to the founding of Pro Tech Monitoring, Inc. and the
creation of SMART® System Technology.
At Pro Tech, our experienced staff is dedicated to providing the criminal justice community
with better technology to keep offenders under effective supervision. Systems that aid in
public safety, encourage rehabilitation, and modify behavior. For just a fraction of the cost
of incarceration, you can reach your ultimate goal of public safety, of people feeling
comfortable and secure in their communities.

 Company Profile
 Pro Tech Monitoring, founded in 1995, has been a leader in the GPS offender tracking
 market since 1997. Pro Tech Monitoring Inc. is a Delaware Corporation founded in July of
 1995. Pro Tech is headquartered in Odessa, Florida, and currently employs
 approximately 45 people.

 Using the experience gained in tracking more than 20,000 offenders, Pro Tech has
 continually improved the SMART® system over the last four years resulting in a mature
 product that is ideally suited to meet the pilot testing requirements of the New York
 State Division of Parole.

 The SMART® system is currently in use with more then 120 Federal, State, county and
 local government agencies, including the Florida Department of Corrections, Colorado
 Department of Corrections, Kansas Department of Corrections, Texas Department of
 Criminal Justice, U.S Pretrial and Probation agencies and numerous private agencies
 supporting pre and post adjudication offenders. To date, Pro Tech Monitoring is the only
 company in the world that has successfully fielded equipment to track offenders using

 The Pro Tech Monitoring SMART® System utilizes GPS position information from US DoD
 Satellites, the cellular networking system, proprietary software, our Customer Call
 Center and our Surveillance Data Center to make the SMART® System a reliable and
 user friendly offender tracking tool for corrections officers.

 Pro Tech's SMART® system provides real time tracking of offenders (active tracking),
 and post-process, or passive tacking capabilities. An ankle bracelet transmitter
 electronically tethers the offender to a Portable Tracking Device, or the Miniature
 Tracking Device, which communicates position and compliance information to the
 Surveillance Data Center over a wireless connection (active), or a standard land-line
 connection (passive). Corrections officers are provided with unlimited access to the
 stored data via a secure Internet connection or by contacting our 24/ 7 call center. Data
 availability is guaranteed by multiple redundant phone lines, back up power supplies, an
 emergency generator and a mirrored, fully capable back up facility located 15 miles away
 from our primary facility. Tracking data less than one year old is available on-line and
 data older than one year is stored indefinitely and is available on an unlimited basis upon

 Pro Tech provides notification of non-compliance via pager, email and/ or fax. Victims
 and potential victims may also be equipped with a pager to provide early warning of an
 offender entering a specified exclusion zone (active tracking only). To aid in assessing
 offender compliance trends, Pro Tech makes several violation summary reports available
 for on-line viewing or printing. Equipment usage reports, maintenance reports, and other
 summary level reports are also available.

 One of the most useful tools provided as part of the system is the mapping capability,
 which is accessed via secure Intemet for displaying real time position and historical
 tracking data. The proprietary mapping software provides the officer with a useful tool
 for viewing an offenders position and tracks relative to established inclusion zones and
 exclusion zones that have been established by the corrections officer for the offender.
 Compliant and non-compliant points are easily discernable with time, speed and direction
 information also displayed.

 The Pro Tech SMART® System is the only field proven GPS tracking system for offenders
 in the world. The system is available today; with no risk or developmental learning curve
 associated with the Pro Tech system.

            SMART® Passive Tracking System
SMART® Passive Tracking offers conventional house arrest plus permanent historical
record of offender movement on a daily basis.

SMART® Passive Tracking is truly advanced technology. It not only ensures offenders are
within the confines of their homes, but by utilizing the Global Positioning System (GPS) and
our patented SMART® (Satellite Monitoring And Remote Tracking) technology, it also
monitors their movements outside the home. All for about the same cost per day as
conventional house arrest systems.

How Does it Work?

SMART® Passive Tracking utilizes Pro Tech's state of the art Miniature Tracking Device
(MTD), which combines our proven GPS, based technology with our tracking software.

The MTD is a small, rugged device that clips on an offender's belt and is "tethered" to the
offender using a tamper-resistant ankle bracelet. The high sensitivity GPS receiver tracks
offenders when outside the home, even in low signal environments. When the MTD is placed
in the Docking Station, charging commences and the MTD reports all offender information to
Pro Tech's Offender Tracking Center (OTC) via a landline. At the same time, the MTD
reports all offender information to Pro Tech's Surveillance Data Center (SDC) via landline.
Immediately an offender's tracking history, including violations, becomes available to
authorities. This information can be accessed at any time by utilizing Pro Tech's PCE
mapping software and a secure Internet connection.

                                    OTHER KEY POINTS

Latest upgrades to the Passive System include: The addition of point and click reference
labels on the maps, inclusion and exclusion zones, notification of violation cleared, one-time
schedule changes, and expanded reporting capability.

Unlike conventional electronic monitoring devices,, SMART® Active Tracking offers a means
of intensive supervision at an affordable price. It tracks an offender closely and effectively,
24/7 using Global Positional System (GPS) location information and the wireless network.

How does it work?

The key components of the SMART® Active Tracking System are a Portable Tracking Device
(PTD), ankle bracelet, charging stand, and GPS satellites.

Offenders are fitted with a tamper-resistant ankle bracelet and assigned a PTD to keep near
them at all times. The ankle bracelet acts as an "electronic tether" which transmits signals
to the PTD.

The PTD uses GPS signals and a wireless network to locate and report an offender's every
move. The PTD monitors the signal strength of the GPS satellites to ensure accurate location
information and incorporates a motion detector to monitor movement in areas of insufficient
GPS signal strength. Pro Tech's Offender Tracking Center (OTC) monitors this information.
The PTD is equipped with an LCD, used to notify the offender of violations and for sending
text messages from the agency. This patented communication capability has demonstrated
it's effectiveness in modifying offender behavior and reducing recidivism.

Authorities can even create multiple Inclusion and Exclusion zones, and be notified by fax,
pager or email whenever a zone violation occurs.
