Default Can you get an ankle monitor wet?

Hey! My boyfriend will be home on June 6th. I made reservations to rent jet skis on the date of his release but was reminded that he would be on an ankle monitor. Can you get TDCJ ankle monitors wet?

It depends on who makes them. A little wet, from a bathtub, was never a problem. Scuba gear or deepsea diving was right out.
It depends on what the type of monitor it is...GPS or simple curfew monitoring. He can ask the Officer installing the device as well.

Your other issue, given it is a release to an EM caseload, is whether the schedule will even have been done in a manner that allows time out of the house to go jet-ski'ing.

Some EM schedules are more stringent than others, while some EM officers just enter the 'may leave/must leave' coding. But also, the day of release is often a day where time isn't going to be available...

As another consideration...I have spoken with several clients within the day or so of their release, and all they really wanted to do was decompress at the house. A day of planned activities was NOT what they wanted to do, and that included one female client whose mother wanted to take her to wally-world for basic shopping.

It's the curfew monitoring one. I was told they can shower in it, but they don't recommend submerging them.
