GRANT COUNTY WORK RELEASE CENTER

Lt. Philip Coats

509-754-6521

 

The Grant County Work Release Center is a 100 bed, medium security facility operated by the Correction Division of the Grant County Sheriff's Office.

 

The Work Release Center opened in March of 1999 to provide housing for minimum to medium security, post sentence inmates and to allow local courts the option of Work Release as a sentencing alternative.

 

Inmate education is emphasized at the facility. Inmates who do not possess a high school diploma or Generalized Education Diploma (GED) are required to attend GED preparation classes held at the facility twice a week.

 

The facility also encourages inmates with diplomas to prepare for college and/or vocational courses by attending GED classes. For these inmates entry into the GED class is a little more difficult. Prior to being accepted into the class the inmate must verbalize in a 500 word essay on why they should be allowed in the course and what their future plans are. Upon review of the essay by the GED teacher and facility sergeant acceptance into the class is either granted or denied.

 

Inmate work programs are also emphasized at the facility. The following projects are examples of work programs supervised by staff:

Work Crew: Inmates are utilized for permanently assigned and temporary details where inmate labor allows governmental or non-profit agencies to save or maximize tax payer dollars.

 

Examples of temporary details are landscaping, weed abatement, painting, brush removal and moving of office furniture.
