It costs $86.00 per day to keep a male in jail in Genesee County. Genesee County does not have jail facilities for females so they are usually incarcerated in Orleans County for per diem rate of $70.00 per day after a base annual fee of $15,000.00.
As of 02/27/08 Genesee Justice was monitoring 129 defendants (101 males and 28 females.) If these defendents would have been incarcerated it would have cost Genesee county taxpayers $8,686.00 per day for the males, and $1,960.00 per day for the females.
The RUS program saves Genesee County Taxpayers $3,885,790.00.
As of 02/27/08, this caseload of defendants was supervised by one case manager costing $32,000.00 in salary plus fringe benefits.
