Community-based alternatives to prison include, but are not limited to, electronic monitoring, work release, day-reporting centers, and half-way houses. Community-based alternatives cost thousands of dollars less than prison, and help improve public safety by ensuring that people remain in the community with their families and support systems, while also maintaining employment and receiving services.
