Fiscal Impact
Jail Costs Vs. Probation Costs
The cost, per offender, to operate the current probation program is less than $200 per year versus $30 per day to stay in the Porter County Jail and $53 per day in the Indiana Department of Correction. This does not include the social costs of caring for the extended family members of each defendant.
