The House Arrest Alternative Sentencing Program (HAASP) was established in 1987 to provide a sentencing option for DWI offenders. Since that time, the program has expanded to accept persons convicted of all offense types and pretrial defendants requiring intensive supervision. HAASP offers enforcement of curfew requirements through the use of an “active” monitoring system. Participants on the Program are equipped with an electronic monitoring device “bracelet” which transmits a continuous signal to a central monitoring unit.
