RemoteMDx Continues Implementation of 2008 Strategic Plan With Purchase of Court Programs, Inc.

SANDY, UT--(Marketwire - January 8, 2008) - RemoteMDx, Inc. (OTCBB: RMDX), a leader in monitoring technologies for the criminal justice system, announced the acquisition of a 51% controlling interest in Court Programs, Inc. as detailed in an 8-K filed on December 21, 2007. Court Programs has administered alternative sentencing programs and related monitoring of offender services for more than thirty years in the Southeast United States. Court Programs presently has eighteen offices and fifty employees located in Mississippi and Florida. It monitors over 7,000 offenders on a daily basis.

"With the addition of Court Programs, RemoteMDx solidifies its presence in Florida and Mississippi. This acquisition, combined with the acquisition of Midwest Monitoring announced two weeks ago, complements our strategy of creating a nationwide network utilizing the Company's TrackerPAL monitoring system," stated Jim Dalton, President of RemoteMDx. "These companies are well entrenched politically and organizationally in their territories. Combine this with the Company's state-of-the-art monitoring center provided by RemoteMDx's wholly owned subsidiary, SecureAlert establishes a strong foundation in achieving RemoteMDx's plan to monitor in excess of 40,000 offenders by 2009."

"CPI provides services to over 100 courts within 34 counties in Mississippi and Florida. With the financial strength of RemoteMDx combined with SecureAlert's monitoring expertise and management, I believe that we can dramatically grow our business in the Southeast," said David Rothbart, President and CEO of Court Programs. "This consolidation will greatly enhance the services that we can offer to our customers."

RemoteMDx through its wholly owned subsidiary, SecureAlert, offers a unique combination of a 24 hour, seven-day monitoring, coupled with proprietary and patented technology that locates offenders wherever they may be and tracks and responds to violations of predetermined geo-zones, two and three-way voice communications, and application-specific software, all packaged in one compact, tamper-resistant device with a 96 decibel alarm worn by the offender. SecureAlert offers to agencies a turnkey service including equipment, real-time monitoring and training. The responsible enforcement agency is able to direct SecureAlert's monitoring center to establish parameters of movement by offenders or known predators and any breach in pre-established rules by each offender triggers an alarm. At any time day or night, professionally trained agents of SecureAlert, Inc. are able to communicate in real time with the offender through the device's built-in interactions capability. Additionally, agents are able to summon police if necessary. The Plan is comprised of a series of strategic acquisitions combined with a marketing program targeted to growing the Company's services and products.
