Saudi Arabia will start using an electronic bracelet for the prisoners by the end of this year, according to the director-general of prisons in Saudi Arabia, Major General Ibrahim Al-Hamzi, instead of arresting them.

Al-Hamzi said that the program will come into effect after the work of the company in charge of the program finish, pointing out that the company is working on more than one aspect daily. The bracelet is a good alternative to the arrest operations, especially in low risk issues that do not pose a threat on the social security.
