Electronic Monitoring Services and Equipment
Reasons to Consider Electronic Monitoring from Correctional Options Services:
- Effective January 1, 1999, new laws mandate offender-paid electronic monitoring for all second - and third-time DUI offenders; every city and county must establish or have access to an electronic monitoring program.
- Reduce jail overcrowding.
- Lower corrections costs. With a statewide average daily housing rate of approximately $55, agencies that place an average daily population of 20 offenders on electronic monitoring can achieve net savings of over $450,000 per year.
- Take advantage of COS's new Full Service Program - a whole new way of doing business.
- Utilize WASPC's access to multiple equipment vendors and service providers.
- Opportunity to work with the leading provider of electronic monitoring equipment and services in the state; WASPC currently furnishes equipment and services to approximately 100 agencies, maintaining a statewide average daily population in excess of 500.
- Availability of equipment upgrades and revisions, technical updates, quarterly newsletters, and quarterly and annual statistical reports, as well as the latest technological advances.
- Eliminate the need for an extensive RFP bid process and equipment evaluation; WASPC routinely does this, so agencies don't have to.
- Obtain service without the need for equipment purchase; agencies pay only for units in service and are not required to pay shelf costs.
- Ability to customize community supervision to address specific offender populations.
- Join a statewide network of users who interact, share ideas, and provide program support.
