Home detention had been a hot debate in the research in this field. One school of thought intended to find out the impact of home dentition on offenders, and their families along to exploring the views of others. Another schools of thought research the nature and impact of home detention with electronic monitoring, while questioning the capacity of home detention to achieve its board-ranging goals, such as rehabilitation and retribution. (Ball and Lilly 1986; Lilly, 1992; and Payne and Gainey, 2000; Gibbs and King, 2003). Nonetheless, employing cost-benefit analysis of home detention curfew schemes, while comparing to other criminal justice sanctions, are few. Mostly indicate the scheme is cheaper than an equivalent prison places or that financial savings can be made by using home detention. Significant in this field are Fox (1987) and Dodgson (2001). One supported the cost of home confinement or home arrest in the United States, showing the cost range were from two thousand to seven thousand US dollars. Another one research Home Detention Curfew Scheme in United Kingdom, and he pointed out 36.7 million pounds was saved by reduced prison places in first year of the scheme. However, cost-benefit analysis is still few: the cost and the benefit have been difficult to measures, as the costs and benefit merely telling us little information about the outcome for home detention. Few researches have done significant cost-benefit analysis (Gibbs and King, 2003).
