Electronic Home Detention

GPS MonitoringGPS Home Detention / Tracking System and / or Continuous Alcohol Monitoring / House Arrest

Lincoln County Parole and Probation employs various programs to monitor Adults on Supervision and has the ability to sanction Adults on Supervision, by using GPS Tracking and or Secure Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitor System.

This system is monitored 24 hours a day and information is electronically transmitted to a supervising officer at Lincoln County Parole and Probation Department or Local Supervising Authority. Individual cases are often specific to the crime/violation and different equipment, restrictions and requirements can be placed on the Justice Involved Individual.

Who Can Be Placed on GPS / Alcohol Monitoring?

Persons may be placed on GPS/alcohol monitoring directly:

  • By the Probation Officer,
  • By Court Order, or
  • By the Sheriff's Office (by matrix or 1145).

GPS / Alcohol Monitoring Requirements 

The Justice Involved Individual must meet eligibility requirements, which may include the following:

  • An approved residence with reliable power
  • make advanced payments as determined

How it Works 

  • The Personal Tracking Unit and Transmitter system consists of an ankle band attached to the Adult on Supervision. While on GPS the tamper-proof/water-resistant (not waterproof) transmitter monitors the individual's movement 24 hours a day.
  • In addition to the ankle band, some units also require a base station often hooked up.
  • Should the Adult on Supervision exceed a preset distance or violate a customized testing or reporting schedule, an automatic transmission will occur notifying the monitoring agency that the individual is in violation of the parameters set up for his/her/their specific case.
  • Upon receipt of the information, a Parole Officer will be dispatched to investigate the situation and make an arrest, if appropriate.
