House Arrest

The House Arrest Department is located within the Adult Residential Center and operates on a 24-hour bases.  House Arrest involves a philosophy of strictly limiting an offender’s movements within the community through electronic monitoring while using cognitive based intervention technique’s to promote behavior change within the client’s served.

Each client is assessed at intake and assigned electronic monitoring equipment based on this assessment tool.  Clients can be assigned an array of equipment based on their assessed need that may include: an ankle bracelet for proximity or GPS tracking, a remote breath testing unit (alcohol monitoring, and photographic facial recognition), or a SCRAMx device (ankle bracelet with transdermal testing capabilities).  The House Arrest Department has 9 possible variations of equipment that could be used.  Most equipment works through cellular signals like cell phones, but equipment can be set up using a landline for clients living in areas without good cellular services.

In cases of court orders or sanctions, clients can be assigned to SCRAM or Remote Breath testing only.  This means House Arrest will monitor the case for compliance with the electronic monitoring equipment but case management is not utilized and movements are not restricted as long as the client is in compliance with the program.

Intensive Supervision Probation

The Adult Intensive Supervision Program (ISP) provides community-based supervision of adult felony and some misdemeanor offenders from several referral sources:

  • assignment at the time of sentencing,
  • assignment following a probation revocation hearing,
  • placement upon successful release from the Residential Center Program, and
  • placement through internal sanctions from Adult Court Services

While assigned to Internal Supervision Program, clients are required to meet with their supervising officers on a frequent basis. The Intensive Supervision Officer initiates collateral contacts with treatment providers, family members, employers, and significant others. Clients enroll in required counseling and submit to frequent urinalysis (at their own expense).

Work Release

The Work Release program started in October 2007 at the Adult Residential Center. These offenders ordered to the program are serving their sentences while being allowed to maintain their employment, pay taxes and pay on their program and court financial obligations. The program provides high accountability for the offenders including their time spent in the community at their places of employment. Work Release staff regularly conduct compliance checks and maintain contact with employers to ensure the offenders are complying with the rules of the program on a consistent basis.

Intensive Work Release

In April 2013, the Work Release program expanded to include an Intensive Work Release component. Determination of placement into this program is based on the Level of Service Inventory- Revised (LSI-R) Assessment, with those offenders scoring higher on the risk/needs scale being placed in the Intensive Work Release program. Offenders in this program adhere to the same standards of the traditional Work Release program, with the addition of more frequent contact with their supervising officer, as well as additional facility and/or community-based programming requirements and service referrals. Risk-reduction is sought through cognitive-based interventions and referrals to programs and services, and case plans are individualized to target specific offender risk/needs.
