Electronic In-home Detention


In-home Detention is an alternative to incarceration sentencing options made available to the District/County courts of Douglas County.  This sentencing option is commonly referred to as “home detention” and allows the defendant to remain gainfully employed while they serve their court ordered sentence.  By statute, the defendant is only allowed out of their residence for work, court ordered treatment and medical related matters.  CJS is able to monitor a defendant’s alcohol consumption and whereabouts electronically, which holds the defendant accountable for court ordered conditions of home detention.
