Intensive Supervision Program (ISP), commonly referred to as “house arrest,” is an alternative program to incarceration in a facility. Inmates on house arrest must wear a monitoring device bracelet at all times. Depending on an inmate’s sentence, inmates are required to be at home during certain times of the day. If at any time an inmate is not at home during the required curfew, an ISP officer is immediately notified. If necessary, a warrant is issued for the inmate’s arrest if it is considered to be an escape from ISP.
An inmate can be classified to ISP by a judge. House Bill 585, which took effect July 1, 2014, removed MDOC's authority to place offenders on House Arrest.
