Sex Offender Monitoring Program

The Alaska Department of Corrections uses the Containment Supervision Model for management of sex offenders. The Containment Model is the best practice for the supervision of sex offenders and the most successful at reducing sex crime recidivism. The Containment Model uses specially trained probation/parole officers, polygraph testing and focused cognitive-behavioral sex offender treatment. Cognitive behavioral therapy is an evidence-based structured approach to treatment which promotes prosocial behavior and challenges negative or deviant thought patterns in order to alter unwanted behavior patterns.
