The Electronic Monitoring Program provides the Judiciary with a cost-effective alternative to traditional incarceration. The program assists with reduction of the jail population while maintaining intensive twenty-four (24) hour a day supervision of clients.
While participating on Electronic Monitoring, clients are permitted to maintain their employment and attend court ordered activities. Any other movements within the community must be approved by EM staff.
Monitoring of clients on house arrest is accomplished by the use of a Global Positioning System (GPS). Transdermal Alcohol Detection (TAD) transmitters are utilized to detect alcohol consumption.
The clients are monitored on a twenty-four (24) hours a day, seven (7) days a week basis, with the on-call officer responding to after hour concerns. Clients released to Electronic Monitoring at a satellite location will report to their assigned officer's location for appointments, as instructed.
