Mission: Together: maintain custody, security, and control in a safe, efficient and constitutional manner.

All programs must be BY order of a court

EHM (Electronic Home Monitoring) and CAM (Continuous Alcohol Monitoring)

These two programs allow pre-trial and sentenced individuals to serve time at their home instead of being confined in jail. Individuals may be allowed to work and go to treatment while on these programs. We use SCRAM Systems which provides us with the most up-to-date monitoring equipment.

Day Reporting

TDay reporting is another form of Alternative Sentence. It requires the offender to report to the jail on set days for check-in. Individuals may be required to work at the jail when they report. Work can include litter crew, projects for other departments, etc.

Work Release

Work release allows offenders to keep their jobs outside of jail. The offender would be housed inside our facility and allowed to leave the jail to work or court ordered treatments. After work or treatment, the offender would return to jail. Work release is a great alternative for those who have a steady job and wish to keep it. Not all jobs will be accepted for work release.
