EMD is an alternative to detention. This is a County-funded program for youth who qualify for detention but can be served outside the detention center. This is a GPS System that will tell the EMD officer the location of the individual at all times. The cost is $110 up front and $17 per day with a minimum of 30 days. The monitoring is facilitated by Youth Services. The EMD officer is responsible for completing all activation paperwork, as well as automatic detention orders if the youth violates EMD.
