Alternatives to secure detention - youth

Electronic Home Monitoring

Youth are placed into the Electronic Home Monitoring Program as an alternative to secure detention. Youth are court ordered into the program. 

Youth on Electronic Home Monitoring wear an ankle monitor that provides information on their location at all times. Youth are allowed to leave their home with permission to continue activities such as attending school, counseling, work, and more. 

Electronic Home Monitoring works with the Community Supports Program to help youth and their families.
