You must always be able to contact or receive calls from your Adult Probation Officer or Electronic Monitoring (EM) Specialist for the duration of supervision under electronic monitoring. Electricity and telephone are required. If either is disconnected you must contact your assigned Adult Probation Officer and EM Specialist immediately.
