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.
The court can order several variations of our program. Note the Electronic Monitoring is equivalent to traditional House Arrest Services. A client ordered to Electronic Monitoring is assessed at intake and assigned monitoring equipment based on the court's orders or probation officer's request. If the court orders GPS Monitoring, the client will be on GPS tracking without a restricted schedule, but exclusion zones will remain intact, the client cannot move residences without permission, and the client cannot travel outside the 9 county area without permission.
Based on the Equipment Assessment, 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. All equipment has cellular capabilities and all clients have to have their own cell phone for communication purposes and some gear sends text messages that will require the cell phone as well.
