In order to be part of the inmate workers population, an inmate has to go through medical screening and clearance. The Classification Unit will conduct a review of the inmate applicant. Inmates are then placed at different work areas based on their classification level. Inmates are paid weekly and have to work more than 30 days to obtain 6 days of work credit. Inmates sentenced under AB 109 (serving state prison in a county facility) are granted no more than six weeks work credit per year under AB 624. These inmates are mandated by the courts to serve state time in a county facility. Inmate workers must be in programming to obtain credits.

Outside crews must be:

  • Sentenced
  • Free from violent and or sexual crimes
  • Free from any disciplinary actions

Inmate workers who successfully complete and graduate from educational courses take part in graduation ceremonies accompanied by family members. This creates motivation and a feeling of begin part of the community. Inmate workers have taken advantage of the opportunity of our educational programs. Class attendance has increased and we have seen a larger group of graduates since their arrival to our facility.
