SuperCom (NASDAQ: SPCB), a global leading provider of traditional and digital identity solutions, offering advanced safety, identification, and security products and solutions to governments, is using advanced technology to reduce and prevent crime, specifically domestic violence. Through its propriety electronic monitoring (“EM”) platform, the company offers advanced EM solutions and services that have repeatedly been shown to protect domestic violence victims in multiple countries.
This comes in the wake of growing cases of domestic violence, a situation which is now encouraging governments to explore monitoring technology as a way to mitigate these cases. In England and Wales alone, a crime survey revealed that an estimated 2.1 million people aged 16 years and over experienced domestic abuse in the year ending March 2023. Police records showed a total of 889,918 domestic abuse-related crimes in the same period, a similar number to the previous year (https://ibn.fm/63hEe). In the United States, a study showed that nearly 3 in 10 women and 1 in 10 men had experienced rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by a partner, a worrying trend that calls for action sooner rather than later (https://ibn.fm/hQ328). By apprehending domestic violence offenders and then effectively monitoring them to prevent future contact with potential victims, cases of additional violence can be effectively prevented, something SuperCom’s EM technology is ideally designed to do.
In an FBI report released in 2022, it was noted that close to 600 murder-suicides occur yearly in the country, accounting for 1,000 to 1,500 deaths. Of the cases that law enforcement reports, 65% involve intimate partners, with 81% occurring in the home (https://ibn.fm/JxmPU). This is a worrying statistic, one that is further compounded by the fact that a domestic abuser is likely to abuse their partner again, even if previously incarcerated. A report showed that 10-18% of those arrested for domestic violence are arrested again in six months, while 15-30% face a second arrest within 28 months, and up to 60% are rearrested within ten years (https://ibn.fm/TP816).
To protect the victims of domestic abuse, governments are resorting to offender monitoring systems such as SuperCom’s. With its PureProtect product, the company can offer law enforcement near real-time information and many lines of communication, allowing for the enforcement of a safe distance between the offender and the victims. Its PureTag BLE bracelet with advanced tampering detection, paired with the PureMonitor software and PureProtect Smartphone, offers a life-saving domestic violence solution, allowing for victim protection and the enforcement of court restrictions (https://ibn.fm/a6i8M).
So far, several governments have adopted SuperCom’s offerings, recently including Romania and Finland. The company’s expansion into the US market promises to offer the same benefits, if not more, significantly enhancing the safety of domestic violence victims, particularly in the wake of the growing cases being reported. By doing so, the company is not only living up to its mission to revolutionize the public safety sector worldwide through proprietary electronic monitoring technology, data intelligence, and complementary services but also to create shareholder value.
