Washington County Considers Microchip Monitoring

Washington County law enforcement agencies got a favorable response on June 9 to their request for funding to expand electronic monitoring of people awaiting trial.

During a work session of the county Board of Commissioners, officials from the Washington County Sheriff's Office and the Community Corrections Department asked for up to $143,000 to set up the program.

For the sheriff’s office, which runs the Washington County Jail, part of the motivation for the request is that it would allow the release of up to 100 pre-trial defendants — those who are unable to make bail before their cases go to trial — into the community so as to avoid overcrowding in the jail and the potential forced release of more dangerous inmates.
