Electronic Monitoring Program (EMP)

ELECTRONIC MONITORING PROGRAM (EMP)

Pretrial Services can provide a higher level of supervision for individuals with Electronic Monitoring Program (EMP) as a condition of release as ordered by the court.  Our EMP program has several facets.  They are as follows:

GPS – Home Detention

Home detention is an alternative to confinement in the County Jail.  Individuals placed on this program must remain confined to their residence unless granted specific exclusions by the court.  They are required to wear an ankle bracelet and are monitored 24-hours a day. 

GPS Only

Individuals ordered to GPS are able to go out into the community and can be tracked via GPS in lieu of home confinement.  Pretrial Services also has the ability to implement inclusion and/or exclusion zones if necessary.  They are required to wear an ankle bracelet and are monitored 24-hours a day. 

Continuous Alcohol Monitoring (CAM) 

CAM is a transdermal, automated, and noninvasive alcohol testing device which monitors an individual's alcohol level.  Individuals are required to wear an ankle bracelet and are monitored 24-hours a day.
