Electronic House Arrest center schedules open house

RALEIGHThe Division of Community Corrections will host an open house at its Electronic House Arrest (EHA) Monitoring Center on Wed. Dec. 3 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. The monitoring center is located at 2020 Yonkers Road in Raleigh.

This open house is designed to introduce or reacquaint district and superior court judges, district attorneys, county commissioners, members of the Criminal Justice Partnership Program board and other criminal justice professionals to the center’s services.

The Division of Community Corrections provides statewide electronic monitoring for offenders sentenced to electronic house arrest and also provides monitoring services for sheriff’s departments and county agencies operating pre-trial/release programs and for the NC Department of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention.

Electronic House Arrest monitoring enhances the supervision of offenders who need strict supervision and control in the community and provides immediate response to violations. Offenders wear an ankle bracelet transmitter while a receiver is placed in their home. If the offender leaves the home in violation of their sanction, an alarm is received in the monitoring center and an officer can be dispatched to investigate. The monitoring center operates 24-hours a day, year-round.

Managers and technicians at the EHA center will provide a demonstration of the equipment and software and share information regarding the center’s electronic monitoring and criminal information services.

Members of the media interested in attending the open house should notify Cathy Smith at the Division of Community Corrections at 919-716-3112.
