Sheriff addresses committee about ankle bracelets for inmates

Posted By | October 4, 2018 8:11 am

White County Sheriff Steve Page explained to county commissioners who are members of Steering Committee B that an ankle bracelet program for non-violent inmates would cost less than physically housing the offender in jail.

White County Sheriff Steve Page addressed members of Steering Committee B, on Oct. 1, 2018, about overcrowding at the jail and the possible solution to the problem.

Page explained that ankle bracelets for non-violent offenders would allow some of the inmates to do their time within their own homes.

Cami Howard, White County Sheriff Department head of administration and communications coordinator, presented the committee with facts and figures about the money the office would be saving by switching at least 45 inmates to an ankle bracelet system, which was the number of inmates that could potentially be placed on the ankle system as of Oct. 1. The committee was concerned about the monitoring of the system and how it worked. Page explained how his office would handle it.

“This is strictly for non-violent offenders,” said Page. “These will be people we can monitor everywhere they go.”

The committee showed concerns about where the revenue would be coming from to pay for the program. Howard stated the amount to house an inmate is approximately $8 per day. When an inmate is placed on the ankle bracelet program, the amount to maintain the inmate goes down to $3.25 per day, or $100 per month. The sheriff department plans to charge the inmate that amount. Howard explains it will be some time, however, before they will be able to see that money returned to them.

“Currently, we make commission off of phone calls and video visitation,” said Howard. “This money would be used up front to obtain the equipment for the ankle bracelet system. The up-front cost would come from us before we can recoup the money from the inmate. The jail is creating this revenue source, and, if we can use it to combat the overcrowding issue, it will limit our liability.”

The state of Tennessee has already warned the jail about the overcrowding issue. Page explained to the committee that if something isn’t done soon, the state has the authority to come in and make the county build another jail, which could cost into the millions. Page was not asking for the funds to implement the program, only the permission to allocate the funds already coming into the jail.

    I am impressed with your potential ankle bracelet solution to the jail overcrowding. It sounds like a good idea all the way around, if it truly keeps the offender inside his/her home. I presume that someone already on the payroll will be monitoring the project so that White County citizens would not incur the expense of a new hire?
