Alternative Custody Supervision

 

The Corrections also includes an Alternative Custody Supervision (ACS) unit responsible for supervising offenders released from the jail and placed into the community. Prior to being placed in the program, the offenders are assessed to determine the level of risk their release would pose to public safety. If the risk is determined to be reasonable, and the offender meets other program requirements, he or she may be accepted into the program. Currently the program has the capacity to supervise 200 offenders. Correctional Deputies assigned to the ACS unit supervise the offenders by conducting regular and unannounced home visits; ensure compliance with the terms and conditions of release and provide basic case management. The ACS unit uses both Radio Frequency (RF) and Global Positioning System (GPS) equipped ankle bracelets to monitor offenders released to the Sheriff’s Alternative Custody program. Offenders are required to remain at their residence, unless they are working, attending classes or have permission to leave.
