Serious Habitual Offender Comprehensive Action Program (SHOCAP), is designed to help monitor juveniles in Alachua County that have been charged and convicted of any law violations that meet the program criteria. Juveniles who qualify for this program are selected by a panel of people in law enforcement, juvenile justice, counseling agencies, public housing, state attorney's office, and the public defenders office. This program monitors 30 juveniles at a time, and works on deterring them from committing a law violation as well as maintaining attendance in school. Juveniles in this program that violate probation sanctions can be arrested at the time of the violation whereas juveniles not on SHOCAP but on probation can only have a violation of probation filed with the court and the juvenile's probation officer.
