The Butler County Department of Community Corrections is seeking Request for Proposals from qualified vendors for Electronic Monitoring/Alcohol Monitoring/Drug Testing services for both adults and juveniles on supervision through adult or juvenile probation.
The following information will offer a brief explanation and volume of services provided to individuals under the supervision of both Adult and Juvenile Probation:
The Electronic Monitoring Program for adults is reserved for non-violent offenders that the court determines are not a threat to the community. Typical offences that would qualify an offender for the Electronic Monitoring Program include (but not limited to); Driving Under the Influence, Drug Charges, Burglary, Theft, Driving During Suspension, etc. The Adult Probation Office (APO) supervises approximately 100 offenders on house arrest with electronic monitoring daily.
Electronic Monitoring is utilized by Juvenile Court Services (JCS) as an alternative to detention or an out of home placement. On average, JCS has approximately ten youth on house arrest with electronic monitoring daily.
Alcohol monitoring is predominately utilized by APO and is rarely used in JPO. Offenders receiving alcohol monitoring services have existing alcohol dependency issues. Currently, APO has 54 offenders ordered to alcohol monitoring, with a daily average of approximately 50 offenders.
Both APO and JPO drug screen individuals under court supervision to ensure compliance of probation conditions. On average, the Department of Community Corrections drug screens 460 individuals monthly.
