Alternative sanctions utilize nontraditional sentences in lieu of imprisonment and fines. Examples of alternative sanctions are community service, in-home detention, day reporting, drug treatment, and victim–offender programming.

Although alternative sanctions are becoming more popular with the rise in prison populations, their effectiveness is still in question. RAND corporation is currently studying the issue.
