Solutions for Judges
Programs that enhance bench options
Judges and probation officers need effective and sensible alternatives in addition to jail. BI can support counties and local judges with viable alternatives to detention.
Electronic Monitoring Offices
BI offender monitoring technologies closely supervise a large range of offender populations released to community supervision. GPS tracking can monitor domestic violence or sex offenders in the community. Home detention systems can make sure certain individuals maintain strict curfews and schedules. And other BI technologies can ensure compliance to court orders for no alcohol use.
Cognitive Behavioral Programs
BI offers counties one-stop, community-based programs for chronic probation violators or sentenced offenders who can be diverted from costly jail. Offenders must appear in person (report) at this community-based program several days or every day of the week, depending on the level of supervision required. Participants are closely monitored for drug and alcohol use and compliance to curfews and schedules. They also attend a variety of classes to break longstanding criminal behavior. Rewards and sanctions are administered immediately to reflect positive or negative compliance to program rules.
