Home Detention Program

The Home Detention Program is an electronic monitoring program that provides an alternative to incarceration. We bring offenders out of the jail system, re-unite them with their families and try to help make them productive members of society. By using electronic technology we can minimize the risk to society, thus allowing individuals to work and continue with school, treatment programs and cognitive behavioral programs while in their home. It is our goal to use Evidence Based Practices to properly manage and reinstate our clientele into society while maintaining public safety. All qualifying felony offenders have an Indiana Risk Assessment System (IRAS) conducted, a case plan is developed and the participants must comply and complete the recommendation of the case plan/court order.


Programs are recommended as indicated by the high-risk domains of the IRAS assessment. By requiring compliance and completion of these programs, we are attempting to reduce the offenders’ risk of recidivism. Participants of this program meet with an officer once a week to provide a weekly schedule of activities which includes:
  • Court ordered counseling and programming
  • Incentive Passes
  • Work and/or schooling
Surveillance Officers visit the participants home on average between 1 to 3 times per week based on the participants risk level. All participants will have their homes searched within 7 days of entering the program to check for deadly/dangerous contraband, weapons or any other illegal activity and then randomly while on the program and them randomly throughout their stay on the program to ensure program compliance.

Monitoring Equipment

The Home Detention program utilizes monitoring equipment from Track Group. The equipment is comprised of a GPS unit and a BacTrack  (portable alcohol monitoring).
