Community Confinement is a community-based program which provides a sentencing option used by District, Superior, and Family Courts for selected inmates who pose a manageable risk to the community and require structured supervision. All participants are electronically monitored to ensure compliance with approved daily schedules. Most sentenced offenders have substance abuse, shoplifting, driving on suspended license, or driving under the influence charges. Often, offenders are court ordered to treatment and these court orders are enforced by Community Confinement staff.
