Background
The Probation Department has been continuously operating the electronic Monitoring Program (EMP) since 2006 to provide home detention services as a custody alternative for appropriate low risk offenders. The department has the necessary expertise in this area and has necessary contracts with several vendors (BI, Inc., 3M EM, Inc. and CHI, Inc) providing electronic and GPS monitoring equipment.

On April 4, 2011 Governor Jerry Brown signed into law Assembly Bill (AB) 109 referred to as 2011 Public Safety Realignment. AB 109 was later modified by AB 117.
