Home Electronic Monitoring

 

It is the policy of the Page County Jail to provide community release programs to non-violent offenders who present a minimal risk to the community.  Home Electronic Monitoring is a cost effective, intermediate sanction for sentenced non-violent offenders.  The participant’s criminal and social history must suggest a high probability of successful completion of the program.  The Page County Jail’s Home Electronic Monitoring Program is in compliance with § 53.1-131.2 of the Code of Virginia.  Offenders shall meet the established eligibility requirements prior to being released to participate in the program.  Home Electronic Monitoring is approved only if there is an extensive medical history which requires numerous, lengthy hospitalizations and/or numerous lengthy medical appointments. Even if approved for Home Electronic Monitoring by the Jail Administrator an inmate can be denied by the sentencing court or the Department of Corrections. Each Home Electronic Monitoring application is therefore reviewed on a case by case basis.
