E-bracelet to facilitate family violence control in Armenia 

E-bracelet to facilitate family violence control in Armenia 

ArmInfo.As part of the fight against domestic violence, a system of electronic bracelets will be introduced in Armenia from July 2025. On November 17, the Cabinet of Ministers of Armenia approved the procedure for applying and financing electronic control measures, as well as maintaining a database of the electronic control system that determines the procedure for using data.

As Minister of Internal Affairs Vahe Ghazaryan stated when presenting  the draft decision, a corresponding legislative package was adopted  in 2023, which makes it possible to protect victims in the fight  against domestic violence in a more effective way, that is, through  electronic monitoring means, the so-called.  electronic bracelets.

"As a result, the violator will be under electronic monitoring, both  as part of emergency intervention and as part of the decision to use  a remedy," he said.

The entire monitoring process will be carried out in a digital  format, which will make it possible to understand without human  intervention whether the electronic monitoring procedure assigned to  the violator has been violated, and if so, then an automatic system  that detects the violation through an alarm will allow the police to  take appropriate measures.

"The adoption of the draft will be a step forward in the fight  against domestic violence in terms of increasing the efficiency of  the efforts of competent police officers of the Ministry of Internal  Affairs of the Republic of Armenia through technological solutions,"  Ghazaryan emphasized.

Similar bracelets are already used in Armenia, for example, as part  of house arrest and for administrative control. The Ministry of  Internal Affairs plans to purchase about 200 bracelets.

Earlier, Deputy Head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Armenia  Arpine Sarkisyan, during the presentation of the draft amendments to  the law "On the prevention of domestic violence, protection of those  subjected to violence and restoration of family harmony", said that  the violatort and the victim will have electronic monitoring devices  installed, with the help of which a signal will be sent to the  competent authority in case of approaching each other or other  violations.

The devices (200 pieces) will cost 560 million drams. Last year  alone, Sargsyan noted, law enforcement agencies received 1,547  reports of domestic violence, and 1,175 people were already  registered as perpetrators of violence. Statistics reflect only  recorded cases (a significant proportion of victims of violence do  not report it).

"In 556 cases, a warning was given to the violators, in 619 a  decision was made on urgent intervention, in 6 cases the remedy was  applied in court," the deputy minister added. This is an additional  amendment to the current law, the deputy minister said: it is aimed  at making the violator realize that he cannot approach the person who  has suffered from him. According to Sargsyan, this can become a  fairly effective means of control.
