The Sheriff's Work Program was established in 1983 as an alternative to high cost incarceration and full-time confinement in a jail facility for those persons considered low-risk, minimum-security offenders. Defendants serve time by participating in a work program, performing public projects in lieu of confinement. Participants must be recommended for the Program by Court Order and pay a fee for participation.

The Sheriff's Electronic Monitoring Program was established as an alternative to incarceration in 1995. Utilizing advanced electronic equipment and personal surveillance, the Electronic Monitoring Program provides an alternative to incarceration for low-risk offenders with stable housing environments. Carefully screened participants must be employed, attend school, and/or attend treatment programs. Participants must be recommended for the Program by Court Order and pay an income-based fee for participation.
