KCC Electronic Monitoring Program

The application must be submitted two weeks prior to remand date

Minimum Requirements
  • Release date is less than three (3) years.
  • No current or prior sex offense or related convictions.
  • No current domestic violence or related convictions.
  • No in-state want or warrant or an extraditable out-of-state misdemeanor want or warrant. Felony non-extraditable warrants shall be considered on a case-by-case basis.

The Electronic Monitoring (EM) program allows offenders who meet certain requirements to serve jail time at home. Offenders can maintain employment, access community-based treatment, address medical issues, and attend religious functions. There is a weekly cost of $94.00 associated with the program. Inability to pay the fee does not prevent placement on the program. DO NOT APPLY if the minimum requirements cannot be met. The current conviction, prior convictions, success on probation and parole, and involvement in treatment related programs will be considered. EM Placement is a designation therefore a privilege based on suitability. Applicants do not have a right to be on EM and there is no appeal for denial.

Telephone Equipment Requirements
  • Equipment does not require a telephone landline except in some special circumstances.
  • If a landline is required, the line needs to have basic service and a long distance carrier. No call waiting, caller ID, voice mail, line restrictions or blocking of numbers.
  • It is recommended that you not proceed with a phone line until you have been instructed to do so by staff.
Payment and Remand Information

You will be given specific instructions by EM staff prior to remand. All payments are to be made in cash only. Most installations take place on Tuesdays.
