The Community Corrections Tether Program provides electronic monitoring for both pretrial and sentenced clients. Community Corrections uses several types of tether systems including alcohol monitoring units. Each system has a different function, purpose and fee. Clients ordered to participate in the Community Corrections Tether Program will be responsible for a $25 enrollment fee and any fees associated with the tether unit, random drug screenings or other referred services. Tether clients are required to report regularly to a Supervision Agent and are expected to participate in any other customized referral services.
