COMMUNITY ALTERNATIVE SUPERVISION PROGRAM (CASP)
 
CASP Program Description
 
The Community Alternative Supervision Program (CASP) is a case management system emphasizing evidence-based practices within an adult continuum of sanctions.  Offenders are assessed and placed in the most effective treatment and programming options available based on their risk and needs.  If the offender does not meet local CASP criteria, the Court may authorize a signed override.  The Court authorizes the offender movement up and down the CASP levels based on pre-determined guidelines.  The CASP system, including case management of work release clients, has been in operation since 1999.

CASP Program Eligibility
 

Local Participant Referrals - Offenders are screened for CASP eligibility by using the Monroe County CASP Levels 1-5 Eligibility Checklist.  The criteria are applicable for Direct Placement, Condition of Probation, and Executed Sentence cases considered for CASP.  The probation officer will determine if an offender is eligible not only by statute but also by local presumptive program criteria.  The Court will be advised of eligibility status.  If an offender is ineligible per local criteria, the Court may over-ride the local criteria and order the offender to be placed under CASP supervision. 

Transferring In from Another Jurisdiction Request - Monroe County Community Corrections accepts eligible courtesy supervision transfer cases from other Indiana jurisdictions when offenders reside in Monroe County.  All requests for courtesy supervision must be made in advance to allow for eligibility screening using the Monroe County CASP Levels 1-5 Eligibility Checklist.  Monroe County Community Corrections staff will advise referring agency/county of either acceptance or denial of the transfer request.  Judges from another jurisdiction may not override Monroe County’s local criteria. 

Transferring Out to Another Jurisdiction Request - Referrals to another county must be pre-screened by Monroe County Community Corrections staff to ensure that the proposed outside jurisdiction will accept the transfer.   

 
 
 
Electronic Monitoring
 
Monroe County utilizes two types of electronic monitoring:
 
Radio Frequency (RF) – uses an anklet worn by the offender which communicates with a base unit attached to the home telephone (‘land line’ only).  The offender must abide by an authorized schedule establishing when he/she can be absent from the home.  A violation of the schedule will trigger an alert to the field officer.
 
Global Positioning System (GPS) - uses an anklet worn by the offender which communicates with a base unit attached to the home telephone and also through a GPS device carried by the offender.  Offender travel locations are mapped and made available for officer review.  There is an additional $4 daily electronic monitoring enhancement fee if placed on GPS.
