Home Detention is a program designed for youth ages 10 through 17 that reside in Brown County.  Home Detention is defined as the supervision of a juvenile in his own residence as ordered by the Court.  A Home Detention Officer closely monitors the youth’s activities and behavior for a period of time.  A juvenile is placed on this program under struck guidelines to help him become more accountable for his decisions and attitude.

Home Detention has two main functions:

  1. To assist parents and probation in closely supervising a child who has demonstrated problems in school, home and/or with the law.
  2. Used as a less restrictive alternative to secure detention.

Costs:   Generally the program is funded by Brown County.    However if a urine analysis is conducted and sent to the State Health Lab for processing the fee is $45.  Other costs could include electronic monitoring, etc if ordered by the court.
