Huber/Work Release and Electronic Monitoring

Work Release Center
  • Henry A. Huber was a Republican in the Wisconsin State Assembly from 1905 to 1906 before being a Wisconsin State Senator from 1913 to 1924. 
  • Huber gained national recognition for writing the "Huber" Law, allowing county inmates to be employed during the day. 
  • This law began the country wide concept of the prison work release program. 
  • Work release or Huber is a privilege granted by the court allowing sentenced inmates to leave jail for work, child/elder care, school, or treatment. 
  • Inmates are able be outside of the jail with strict rules and regulations during the day, and return to the jail at the set time. 
  • This allows inmates to maintain their employment, education stated and support their children/family members during their incarceration.

The Electronic Monitoring Program (EMP)
  • The Electronic Monitoring Program or EMP allows inmates to serve their sentence in their homes.
  •  EMP is no different than work release, as the inmate cannot do as they please outside of the home. 
  • EMP inmates are allowed to leave home to work, attend school, do court ordered activities, go to treatment, PO meetings, or other EMP Officer approved locations. 
  • All EMP inmates will have a GPS monitoring bracelet on their ankle at all times. The bracelet cannot be removed unless a medical emergency occurs. 
  • EMP officers must be able to contact EMP inmates at any time of day. Voicemail must be set up on cellphones, and landlines in the home. 
  • If Law Enforcement knocks on the door, EMP inmates must open the door. 
  • Social visits are permitted during EMP; however any misconduct involving police may jeopardize the status of an EMP inmate. 
  • If the EMP inmate comes in contact with any law enforcement officer, they must notify their EMP officer immediately by calling 920-391-6809 and leave a message about the nature of the contact. 
  • Alcohol or illegal substances are not permitted while on EMP 
  • To be eligible for EMP, inmates must be able to pay the setup fee of $50 + tax, and a fee of $23.70+tax/fees per day.
