Alternatives to Incarceration

The San Francisco Sheriff’s Office Community Programs Unit supervises court-ordered alternatives to jail as well as a voluntary program for violent ex-offenders to change their lives. This includes

  • Electronic Monitoring, to provide a way for the Sheriff’s Office to supervise people in the community instead of being held in jail
  • Sheriff’s Work Alternative Program (SWAP) for sentenced people who qualify for early release from jail to work on a supervised crew in San Francisco
  • No Violence Alliance (NoVA), a voluntary opportunity for people who have served time in jail over the past five years for burglary or violent crime to change their lives.
