Summary/Abstract: lectronic monitoring is primarily isolation, while the illusory nature of it should be treated only as an ineffective plea, because resulting from superficial assessments. However, the verification of this thesis must be preceded by the study of law, doctrinal guidelines for its application and the judiciary itself. The institution of electronically monitored house arrest, which is a kind of spontaneous sanction, as well as a form of control of the convict, was created as a sort of boon for certain categories of offenders for whom the term of imprisonment could be regarded as an overly severe. Electronic monitoring is undoubtedly a novelty and it is governed by a separate, limited-time law. It constitutes part of a broad perspective Polish political crime thought, which should be positively reviewed due to the presence of more and more important element of humanity.
