Treatment Alternative Program
The Treatment Alternative to Prison Program, or TAPP, is designed to be another sentencing option for Milwaukee judges for certain non-violent female offenders. Offenders sentenced to this program will benefit from intensive, gender-specific alcohol and other drug abuse treatment programming and community supervision support services. The primary focus will be on public safety, offender accountability, successful rehabilitation, and community wrap-around services designed to break the cycle of incarceration. The Department of Corrections, in collaboration with the Department of Health and Family Services, established a cross-departmental, multi-agency team to coordinate the overall development of this program. The purpose of the program is to provide a viable sentencing option for prison bound female offenders, with particular focus on women with children. The target population is women who have been convicted of non-violent crimes and whose criminal behavior is related to their substance abuse.
