    • What inmates are eligible for House Arrest and Work Release?
      To apply, inmates must be sentenced to county time with no bonds or holds. The sentencing Judge must authorize Work Release and/or House Arrest. Inmates receiving House Arrest must have access to an acceptable home environment and a hardwired phone, not cellular phones. Inmates on both programs are subject to random drug testing. All inmates are tested for illegal drugs upon their admittance to the program. Any upward deviation in the level of an illegal drug in their system will result in their removal back to the Correctional Center and possible loss of all good time credits.

    • Where can I find the Kiosks used to deposit money into an inmate's account?
      Kiosk – Funds may be deposited using the ConnectNetwork kiosks located at this facility. There is one kiosk available in the lobby vestibule which is accessible during normal business hours. There are two additional kiosks available at the Public Teller Window which are accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The kiosks accept cash ($5, $10, $20, $50, $100) and MasterCard or Visa credit or debit cards.
