  • In 2020, ADAPT provided 9780 days of GPS and 320 days of Soberlink (Alcohol) monitoring.

The Alcohol (Soberlink) Monitoring Service served (3) clients for a total of 320 days, averaging 107 days per case from those same office locations totaling 10,100 clients.

  • Conservatively, daily incarceration costs are at $150 per day. This program has saved North Dakota Counties and tax payers nearly $1.5 million dollars in incarceration costs in 2020. (9780 + 320 = 10,100 days X $150 = $1,515,000.00). ADAPT collects daily service fees from each client.

ADAPT prides itself in assisting people to be successful without jeopardizing the restrictive rules and community safety that comes with Electronic Monitoring. We use the supportive relationship-based and Christian Belief System philosophy to counsel our referrals to assist them to be positive citizens, family members, and role models. ADAPT's trained staff currently uses high quality equipment from the 3M/Attenti and BI Companies that have been in this business for many years and know what it takes to provide high quality of services. When a citizen makes an illegal mistake and is legally eligible for Electronic Monitoring, we feel it is their responsibility to pay for the cost of this service. ADAPT collects fees and monitors the client therefore reducing the work by the Sheriff’s and other State Departments. ADAPT is also a distributor of this equipment and can directly provide these monitors from the factory to agencies who may want to lease this equipment from ADAPT. 

We thank the many counties that have contracted with ADAPT Inc. since 2007. We look forward to more cities, counties, and other agencies entering into a contract with us in the future to enable this positive program to continue.
