About our program
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 “Electronic Surveillance” 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, education, necessary medical and court matters. CJS can monitor a defendant’s alcohol consumption and whereabouts electronically, which holds the defendant accountable for court ordered conditions of home detention.
