Community Custody Program / Electronic Monitoring

The Detention Center's Community Custody Program (CCP) is founded on the concept of community-based supervision and treatment. The program was developed to provide the use of electronic monitoring to ease institutional overcrowding, saving tax payers money, and allow defendants to gain and maintain employment and family connections. With Court approval, sentenced/pre-trial inmates may enter the program at any stage of their incarceration. When an inmate is removed from the Detention Facility and returned to his or her home, job and neighborhood, this is considered a positive step forward in attempting to reintegrate the program inmate into the community. Inmates are placed in the community and monitored on a daily basis to insure compliance while ensuring the safety of the community.

Community Custody Program Requirements

Defendant's eligibility is based on a multiple components including: court ordered by a presiding judge, client's criminal record, a warrant check, review of institutional records including incident and disciplinary reports, prior participation of CCP.

The defendant must have a permanent residence and or permission from the owner of the residence to reside there. The defendant will read, sign and agree to comply with the CCP rules. Also the owner of the residence must agree to comply with CCP rules.
