Community Based Alternatives to Custody



The goal of Community Based Alternatives to Custody (CBAC) is to identify sentenced inmates for release from jail to various work programs. Inmates on these programs not only help reduce the jail population, but also fill worker assignments at numerous work sites in the county. More than twenty-four thousand inmates are screened annually for CBAC programs.



Electronic Monitoring Program: Inmates are assessed for the Electronic Monitoring Program (EMP) by the Los Angeles County Probation Department, with qualified inmates being approved by the Sheriff's Department for release to the program. Inmates are monitored by Sentinel Monitoring Company, using an ankle bracelet and telephone receiver. Over sixteen hundred inmates are placed on EMP annually.



Involuntary Electronic Monitoring Program: Inmates are assessed for the Involuntary Electronic Monitoring Program (IEMP) by Sheriff's Department personnel. Inmates approved for release to the program are required to stay at their place of residence if not performing work release duties, or privately employed. They are monitored by Sentinel Monitoring Company, using an ankle bracelet and telephone receiver.
