The Mission of the La Plata County Sheriff's Office Alternatives to Incarceration (ATI) Division:

To provide the criminal justice community with alternatives to incarceration for offenders as ordered by the court through strict community supervision and structured reintegration services.


Defendants are assigned to Pre-Trial supervision at the courts discretion. Supervision may consist of any of the following: daily contact, weekly contact, electronic home monitoring (may include alcohol monitoring, GPS tracking or both) and/or alcohol/illegal substance monitoring by an outside approved testing facility. The purpose of any monitoring is to ensure compliance with bond conditions set by the Court, and to reduce the failure to comply rate. Defendants are required to pay monthly supervision costs while assigned to the Pre-Trial Services program.

The objective of the program is to reduce the amount of jail time served by converting a portion of that time to Electronic Home Monitoring. Offenders must have a local residence and be able to pay program costs in order to participate. All offenders assigned to this program must pay an initial intake fee of $50.00 plus a fee of $12 per day the equipment is assigned to them.

Please call 970-382-7069 to schedule an appointment with the Case Manager to make application for Electronic Home monitoring.
