FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT ELECTRONIC HOME DETENTION

Q:            What are the first steps to being placed on EHM?

A:            Please follow this link for: Start Up Information and Forms


Q:           Does the equipment record my conversations?

A:            No. The bracelet only communicates that it is present to the monitor that is attached to your phone. When you come into range of the monitor, the monitor dials out to communicate with us that you are either home or outside the range of the monitor.


Q:           When will the agent get to my residence on my hookup day to install the equipment?

A:            The agents normally have several people to hook up on any given day at various locations and sometimes their schedule changes as people are added or dropped. You should remain at your residence until he/she arrives.


Q:           Am I allowed to go work?

A:            Yes. Your employer will fill out a work form with your hours and schedule. We need this filled out prior to you having permission to work.


Q:           What if I need to leave and it is after hours and my case manager is gone for the day?

A:            As stated in your rules contract, you need to make schedule requests one business day in advance, unless a bona fide emergency. Any requests for Sat/Sun/Mon leaves outside your normal schedule need to be made by Friday.


Q:           Am I allowed to stop to put gas in my vehicle on the way to/from work?

A:            Yes, but please make sure you receive permission from your case manager the day prior. You are to go directly to or from your approved destinations with no deviations or stops along your route.


Q:           What other appointments am I allowed to do on EHM?

A:            You may go to Dr., dentist, court, probation, treatment, and AA meetings. You may go to church only if your court order specifically says that you may go to church. If there is another able-bodied adult in the residence, he/she will get the groceries.

Q:           What happens if I my case manager wrote a violation and sent it to the court? Will I go to jail?

A:            The court will issue a summons and you will be called in to explain to the judge why you violated the rules contract. Depending on the severity of the rule violation, the judge may issue you a warning, may sanction you to more time on EHM, or if the violation is of a serious enough nature, he/she may terminate your EHM and place you into custody.


Q:           What do I do if the power goes out or my unit comes unplugged?

A:            Check to make sure that the monitor is plugged in and that you did not blow a fuse in the fuse box. If you have cell coverage, call your case manager and leave a message that the power is out (or if no cell phone, call when the power comes back on). The monitor and ankle bracelet can still safely monitor you for several days. It will store the information and call us when the power comes back on to download all your events.
