Electronic Home Detention
Renton, WA 98057

Renton Police Department operates an Electronic Home Detention (EHD) program and a 24/7 alcohol monitoring program that provides an alternative to incarceration for non-violent offenders.

With approval of any sentencing court, Renton's program is available to all eligible offenders.

The EHD program allows individuals to be confined to their home with the exception of authorized absences, such as work or court-ordered treatment programs.

Participants are carefully screened before being placed on this program, and once accepted, are monitored at all times.

In addition to the tax savings for Renton citizens, this program is beneficial because it serves as a deterrent for criminals and requires the offender to remain in their home unless going to an authorized site.

Electronic home detention enables individuals to continue their employment, attend court appearances, address family concerns, and fulfill other responsibilities. Participants are required to maintain sobriety and continue with counseling or treatment as required by the court.

The basic EHD monitoring fee is $15 per day, and applicants must pay a $25 non-refundable application fee.

The basic 24/7 alcohol monitoring fee is $10 per day. There may be additional fees for cellular monitors, EHD alcohol monitoring, or applicants sentenced by courts other than Renton Municipal Court.

Applications may be obtained at Renton City Hall.
