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 the court's orders or probation officer's request. Clients can be assigned an array of equipment that may include: an ankle bracelet for proximity or GPS tracking, a remote breath testing unit (alcohol monitoring, and photographic facial recognition), or a CAM device (ankle bracelet with transdermal testing capabilities). The House Arrest Department has several possible variations of equipment that could be used. Most equipment has cellular capabilities, but equipment can be set up using a landline or Ethernet.
In cases of court orders or sanctions, clients can be assigned to CAM only, Remote Breath testing only, or GPS 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. Clients are required to communicate any need to change residences, need approval to travel outside the metro, and need to comply with directives to report to address non-compliances or technical gear issues. Clients need to keep up with House arrest fees as well.
