Work Release

The Work Release Program enables inmates who have demonstrated positive work ethics while under the auspices of state correctional institutions to work for a private employer in the community. The Work Release Program is highly structured with supervision requirements that help the offender to be successful as he/she attempts to bridge the gap between incarceration and return to society.

Inmates often learn skills or acquire trades enabling them to maintain jobs when they return home. The Work Release Program is an important tool in reducing recidivism as work release employees are strongly motivated to succeed in any position they are offered.
