County adopts new monitoring service

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - Some work release inmates in Minnehaha County will be at home thanks to an electronic monitoring service.

Sheriff Mike Milstead says the program will reduce the number of jail beds at the work release center. Milstead calls the service a relief valve.  But he says it won't have an impact on the downtown jail which housed 425 inmates over the weekend.  He prefers an inmate count of 360.            

Milstead says inmates at home are will still submit to drug and alcohol testing and site checks.  

The Minnehaha County Commission unanimously apprioved the plan
