Solutions for Counties
Conserve funding, enhance public safety
As county officials know, jail overcrowding is an enormous problem, jail expansion costs have skyrocketed, and budgets are tightening. BI can support counties to reduce jail crowding, postpone construction, and improve public safety through a mix of proven programs, products and services.
Cognitive Behavioral Programs
This innovative solution is a cost-effective way for your county to ease jail overcrowding while addressing the root of repeat criminal behavior. These BI programs reduce crowding almost immediately, manage from 50 to several hundred offenders, alleviate or cut the need for jail construction, and provide a viable option for judges.
Offenders appear in person (report) at these community-based programs frequently. They are monitored for substance abuse and compliance to curfews and schedules. These programs also deliver treatment and training for chronic offenders, such DWI and DUI offenders, so they stop coming back.
BI Electronic Monitoring Offices
A BI Electronic Monitoring office includes a local office, professional staff, and a wide range of electronic monitoring technologies. BI provides complete equipment installation and removal services and around-the-clock monitoring services and support. Some counties include an offender pay component to greatly reduce program costs.
Supporting your sheriffs and probation
BI supports sheriffs and probation departments that operate Electronic Monitoring Offices as an alternative to detention. BI has more than a dozen different electronic supervision technologies, including GPS tracking, house arrest systems, alcohol compliance systems and more. We also support these programs with our experienced national monitoring center.
