This program provides supervision and treatment for felony offenders who are eligible for probation and who would otherwise be committed to an incarcerative sentence with the NYS Department of Correctional Services (DOCS). The goal of this project is to reduce the number of DOCS commitments made in this county on an annual basis, for those non-violent offenders who could be appropriately managed in the community, with a system of graduated sanctions and service. The project provides day reporting or day treatment services, electronic monitoring, intensive supervision and other forms of offender control to ensure his or her law-abiding behavior and satisfaction of the court-ordered conditions of release, such as restitution, community service and participation in substance abuse treatment.

This program began operation in 1985. This project provides all criminal court clients nitially unable to post bail, the opportunity to be interviewed to determine eligibility for release from jail. The interview process objectively assesses the defendant's qualifications for release hrough release on his/her own recognizance (ROR), or, where the court determines the risk of absconding to be greater, through release under supervision (RUS). Program operations will nclude screening, eligibility determinations, monitoring functions where appropriate, and court notification of those who fail to satisfy release requirements.
