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 $20 for a one-time activation fee and $8 per day. 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.
