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