The Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Office Jail Division operates an Incarceration Diversion Program to include, but not limited to, a Global Positioning System (GPS) monitoring program and Supervised Work Release Program (SWRP) as an alternative to physical confinement within the Jail proper. The Incarceration Diversion Program’s are not used in lieu of incarceration, but as an extension of the detention system. The Incarceration Diversion Program was designed for offenders who pose a minimal risk to the community, or whose behavior and offense indicate a need for close supervision. The program can also be used for offenders who have special needs or problems that may be better handled in their home environment.
At the time of your sentencing in Fond du Lac County, the Judge’s Clerk will provide you with paperwork (Jail Information Packet GPS SWRP) to complete. This paperwork is subsequently forwarded to the Jail. The Huber/Work Release Supervisor reviews the information sheet and a determination is made regarding placement.
You do NOT need to submit a separate application for placement in the GPS or SWRP programs. If you did not receive paperwork at the time of sentencing, you can download the info here Jail Information Packet GPS SWRP.
In order to be considered for placement onto an Inmate Diversion Program all of the following must be met. In addition, there are other factors that may be considered for placement in one of these programs:
- Must live in Fond du Lac County.
- Must be employed full-time, unless exception is granted by Huber Supervisor.
- Absolutely NO alcohol, weapons, or illegal drugs are allowed in the residence during the time period that you are on the program. All other persons in the household must agree to this provision.
- You must comply with all written and oral rules; federal, state and local laws and ordinances. You MUST report any police contact to jail staff immediately. All court orders MUST be complied with or you will jeopardize your ability to exercise Huber privileges. In addition, you may lose good time or have additional charges placed against you.
- There can be no visitors in the home, at any time, if placed on a jail program. Only those who are listed on the information packet sheets are allowed to be in the home.
- A landline telephone may be deemed necessary for your residence depending on cellular coverage.
If you have a valid driver’s license and valid insurance, bring the originals and a photo copy will be made at the time of your booking. If you do not have a valid driver’s license or insurance, bring in a copy of the person or persons who will provide you transportation.
- You must bring in the first two weeks of fees at the time of booking. Fees include the first and last day of incarceration. We accept cash and credit cards. We do not accept personal checks.
