Under CPC 1203.017, sentenced misdemeanor inmates may be required to participate in an involuntary home detention program that includes electronic monitoring, due to lack of adequate jail space. Inmates must meet specific criteria before consideration and will be interviewed to determine if the program will be suitable for each candidate.
The EMP staff uses various forms of information while screening inmates for EMP. This information may include, but is not limited to the following:
Current Misdemeanor charges only
Interview of inmate
No sex or violent related charges
Inmate must have valid address of residence in Orange County
Other household members must be willing participants and sign a co-habitant form
Inmate must wear the electronic monitoring device at all times
The inmate’s place of residence and its contents are subject to search and seizure while on the program (no alcohol, drugs, weapons…)
Maintain telephone contact
No fees to participate in the program
Questions regarding EMP should be directed to the EMP office.
