Judicial-Link Electronic Monitoring Home Detention Sonoma County (EM), offers an alternative to incarceration made available to eligible defendants approved by the court as a condition of Pretrial-Release or Post-Release.
Electronic Monitoring Home Detention Sonoma County allows the defendant an opportunity to complete their legal obligations while remaining employed, attending counseling, drug or alcohol programs and to remain home with their families. Once enrolled into the program the enrollee’s movement in the community will be restricted except for necessary programming. It is expected that, barring unusual circumstances, the EM participants will exhibit a stable and productive community life.
By allowing an individual to remain in (or re-enter) the community as a productive citizen, he/she can continue to contribute to the welfare of his/her family and society as a whole, as well as receive any needed treatment. It should be noted that EM is most appropriate for those individuals not in need of the traditional services provided by a residential program, such as job placement assistance or counseling.
Since defendants are ordered to EM as a condition of pretrial status, probation, parole or in lieu of incarceration, there are many restrictions that would not normally be associated with straight probation; and there is no tolerance for manipulation or failure to comply with program regulations. Those who fail to adhere to the terms and conditions of the Electronic Monitoring agreement will face termination from the program and possible revocation and incarceration. It is fully expected that those clients who are chosen to participate will be serious and complete their program without problems.
While on Electronic Monitoring Home Detention Sonoma County clients may be scheduled out of their home for work, counseling, drug or alcohol treatment, and additional necessary activities if approved by the legal authority, usually the Court, Sheriff or Probation. Prior approval must be received for all activities.
Judicial-Link uses Global Positioning System (GPS) satellite monitoring for medium to high risk offenders as part of a special condition imposed by the Court. GPS monitoring is used to enforce curfews, establish prohibited/restricted areas, and assess and monitor offender movement in the community. Depending on the type of GPS technology employed with a particular enrollee, monitoring can be performed on an almost real-time basis. GPS offers a high level of offender accountability to both the public and crime victims by monitoring when an offender enters or exits prescribed areas known as inclusion zones or exclusion zones.
Judicial-Link utilizes the latest in electronic monitoring technologies available on the market.
Global positioning system (GPS) technology use radio signals to communicate with satellites orbiting the earth. GPS technology locates the Electronic Ankle Monitor by measuring the distance between multiple satellites and the device to determine the enrollee’s location. In addition to meeting the requirements of specified California statute, GPS has proven to be an effective tool used in supervising Electronic Monitoring Home Detention participants.
