SuperCom (NASDAQ: SPCB), a global leading provider of traditional and digital identity and tracking solutions to governments, is highlighting its electronic monitoring (“EM”) solutions used for monitoring offenders and domestic violence prevention. These solutions have proven effective in lowering subsequent tracking offenses and protecting victims. It comes in the wake of the ongoing conversation on stalking, coupled with the growing cases of stalking victims, even as this month of January marks the twentieth annual National Stalking Awareness Month (“NSAM”) (https://ibn.fm/sevvH).
January is dedicated to recognizing, taking action, and responding to the severe crime of stalking, which in 2023 affected over 3 million people aged 16 and older in the U.S. alone (https://ibn.fm/T7J7y). This cuts across stalking in person and online and has forced people to uproot their lives, leave their jobs, suffer physical and psychological harm, or even lose lives. According to Olivia Duffy, a victim advocate at Naval Station Mayport, stalking can show up in many forms, including tracking a person’s location, unwanted communication, harassing an individual, property damage, physically following a person, spreading rumors, or even posting or sharing threats (https://ibn.fm/ThofM).
In recent months, there have been cases of victims killed by their stalkers, including those working in the military, as was the case with Brittney Mitchell, who was shot and killed by her husband. The latter was abusive, and Mitchell resorted to divorcing him. She even filed for a restraining order but was still stalked and killed by her husband. It is but one of the many such terrible instances. Unfortunately, many victims never get justice since, according to Duffy, “You really have to have an offender that has to almost be caught in the process.”
SuperCom understands these challenges and seeks to address them using its EM solutions. Its proprietary electronic monitoring technology has proven to enable customers and criminal justice agencies to detect unauthorized movements of people, vehicles, and other monitored objects, ultimately guaranteeing the safety of stalking victims and holding offenders accountable. The company’s monitoring solutions support various programs such as:
- GPS Monitoring
- House Arrest
- Domestic Violence Prevention
- Inmate Monitoring
- Alcohol Monitoring
- Rehabilitation Services
SuperCom’s solutions have been tried and proven in the field, with various governments around the world adopting them, displaying their effectiveness and functionality. In 2023, the government of Finland also adopted SuperCom’s solutions for its domestic violence monitoring program with an aim to safeguard victims and proactively prevent domestic violence (https://ibn.fm/CvrqC). In the U.S., the company recently secured a new contract with a prominent Kentucky-based service provider, aiding in the company’s expansion into this lucrative market (https://ibn.fm/quCYC).
As the company continues to push for its products, it is carving out a greater market share in the growing electronics monitoring solutions market. This market is expected to post a CAGR of 10.8% between 2021 and 2026. It also expects to tap into the global cybersecurity market, projected to grow from $173.5 billion in 2022 to $266.2 billion by 2027. Most importantly, it looks to protect the millions of domestic violence and stalking victims worldwide and hold offenders accountable.
