Electronic Home Monitoring (EHM) provides a cost effective confinement option to the Juvenile Court Judge/Commissioner. EHM reduces detention overcrowding and allows for greater accountability of youth awaiting court or sentencing. It has proven to be an excellent alternative sanction for convicted youth who are carefully assessed and selected for the program. Probation Officers closely supervise the youth’s movements and adherence to all rules. Violators are immediately placed in the Detention facility.
