CPAC and San Diego DUI

When someone is arrested for a DUI, that person, along with many other obligations, may have to do time in jail. This can be very difficult for some people, as many people have jobs and families that require their presence and attention. If eligible, one alternative to jail is the County Parole and Alternative Custody Unit Home Detention Electronic Monitoring Program (CPAC). This program allows an someone to stay out of jail while still serving time. However, although people are assessed by an electronic monitoring vendor to determine their daily fee, for people requiring alcohol monitoring must pay a daily fee of $7 (non-negotiable).  Fees may be more when the charge is alcohol related.

What does this mean?

If you have been arrested for a DUI in San Diego and would like to participate in CPAC, you must call or submit a request to the office. You will have to pay the required amount, but this may be a viable option when jail is not. You should also find out whether you are eligible, as certain factors make people automatically ineligible. These include defendants with open or pending charges, or committing charges on an exclusionary list. This program can be a practical alternative for someone who cannot afford to spend time in jail. Everyone makes mistakes, and this tool can help someone be accountable for their actions while still maintaining a life.
