Work Release

The Work Release Program allows qualified offenders, who have time to serve, to live at home and report to the work facility or other work site where they perform various public service work.

The Work Release office is open Monday through Friday from 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM, closed on weekends and holidays. This work program is a partnership with the Shasta County Probation Department Community Service Unit and the Home Electronic Confinement (HEC) program.

Work release allows families to stay together and jobs to be continued so an offender´s financial obligations may be met. At the same time, the offender repays our community by doing public service work. Some of the services provided are road crews, cemetery cleanup crews, and growing fruits and vegetables in the 7-acre garden at the facility. The produce is utilized by the Shasta County Jail, with surplus donated to various nonprofit organizations for distribution to the needy.
