The Electronic incarceration Program is an important part of the Norfolk Sheriff’s Office commitment to the successful reentry of offenders into society. The program allows classified minimum security inmates to serve the remainder of their sentence at home or in a treatment program, allowing the inmate to address their substance use issues and gain employment while being closely monitored 24 hours a day by Sheriff’s Office Staff using a tamper resistant GPS bracelet. This allows the offender to begin to reintegrate into their community, and benefits the Sheriff’s Office and the taxpayer by relieving overcrowding and reducing the high costs of housing inmates in the correctional setting. Inmates on the Electronic Bracelet Program are responsible for their own basic needs (Rent, Phone, Heat, Food, Medical, etc.).
