In 1984 Alternatives, Inc started the Beta Alternatives Program working with Yellowstone County to offer alternatives to jail placement for indigent offenders and those convicted of misdemeanor offenses. Today Beta Alternative offers a wide range of community based correctional programs in Yellowstone, Carbon, and Stillwater Counties serving over 6,000 clients annually and employs 14 persons in the program.
Jail Alternatives are supervision and treatment services designed to reduce jail overcrowding, teach responsibility, keep indigent offenders out of jail, permit non-dangerous offenders to retain employment, and to save taxpayer money.
Alternatives, Inc. is a leader in community corrections and re-entry strategies for offenders returning to the community. Our mission: We promote public safety and challenge offenders to become responsible productive citizens.
