What is Self Report?
Self Report is an AnyTrax service that automates offender reporting for low and moderate risk offenders. Using any telephone, the Self Report service conducts an automated interview with each offender and reports the results to their officer. When offenders check-in, the Self Report service:
- Asks tailored interview questions according to agency-defined protocols.
- Records the offender’s explanation for each exception such as a home address change or contact with law enforcement and highlights each exception on the web-based AnyTrax Dashboard.
Self Report helps your agency reduce or eliminate in-person visits for this group of offenders. With an easy-to-use check-in system and automatic reminder calls going to the offender during agency-defined grace periods, the Self Report service achieves over 95% check-in compliance without officer effort or intervention.
What is Curfew Monitor?
The Curfew Monitor service is an effective and inexpensive alternative to equipment-based electronic monitoring. Using the telephone and voiceprint biometrics, the Curfew Monitor service verifies offender compliance with curfew-house arrest conditions and notifies the office of any exceptions. This service calls each offender randomly when they are required to be at home, based on their schedule for curfew or home detention, or it can call at regularly scheduled times. For random or scheduled calls, the offender must respond within 3 minutes.
- If an offender does not respond within 3 minutes, or if the line is busy, Curfew Monitor will call again.
- If an offender checks in late, does not respond, calls from the wrong location, or if the line remains busy, an exception is reported and an alert is displayed on the web-based Anytrax Dashboard.
What is CellTrax?
CellTrax is a flexible, unobtrusive, and inexpensive service to detect and report offender location. CellTrax determines the location of an offender using their own cellphone, with voiceprint verified check-ins to confirm that the cellphone is with the offender. CellTrax can be used independently or in combination with AnyTrax Self Report and Curfew Monitor.
What is Drug Test Notifier?
Drug Test Notifier (DTN) is an AnyTrax service that allows manual or automatic scheduling for tests for individuals or groups and then notifies your offenders when they must report. Using voiceprint biometrics, STN verifies receipt of the drug test notification. DTN can be used as a stand-alone service or as an “add-on” with other AnyTrax services.
What is Court Date Reminder?
Court Date Reminder (CDR) is an AnyTrax service that delivers court date information to your defendants, helping you improve court date appearance rates while reducing administrative effort.

How does CellTrax verify that the phone is with the offender?
CellTrax randomly calls the cellphone and uses an advanced voiceprint biometric to verify offender identity to ensure that they have the phone in their possession.
How Does CellTrax verify that the phone hasn’t been tampered with or disabled?
CellTrax continuously monitors the condition of the phone to ensure that it is functioning properly and providing location data. If the device in unable to provide data (powered off, dead battery, damaged, etc.), CellTrax detects and reports that condition.
What can CellTrax do that a bracelet cannot?
AnyTrax is able to communicate with the offender using both text and phone messages, saving officer time and effort in. This communication simplifies officer supervision efforts and fosters better compliance. For example, when an offender approaches an exclusion zone, CellTrax can deliver a text message warning to avoid the incursion.
CellTrax may also be used to enhance offender communications by providing notification of appointments, treatment sessions, court dates, or drug screens. In addition, CellTrax cases can easily be moved into other AnyTrax programs (e.g. Curfew Monitor and Self Report) as their circumstances dictate.
Finally, CellTrax is better for offender rehabilitation. Many companies will not hire an offender with a bracelet, but using the cell phone provides a less conspicuous method for monitoring offender compliance.
What is a “voiceprint”?
