Electronic Surveillance Program

Otter Tail County Probation Officers administer an electronic surveillance program to be used by the District Court as an alternative to sentencing offenders to jail. Probation Officers receive referrals from the District Court, then meet with the offender to verify the offender’s willingness and appropriateness for electronic monitoring. Offenders who participate in the electronic monitoring program must pay a per diem fee prior to the starting date of the monitoring program. The Probation Officer supervises the client’s progress during the electronic monitoring program and complete the termination process upon the offender’s completion of his/her conditions of release or sentence.
