Work Release

As a general rule, those individuals who represent a low risk to public safety and who are sentenced to 365 days or less in the county jail are eligible for the Work Release Program. Work Release orders are reflected in days of jail time, with “Work Release Approved” in the order. Fines may also be converted into a jail sentence by the court. The rate of conversion can change from year to year, but will be specified at the time of sentencing, converting a dollar amount into days of custody. Credits for pre-sentence custody time will be specified, if applicable, in the sentencing order. Additionally, participants are entitled to conduct credits per 4019 of the Penal Code (good time/work time). The program provides manual labor as an alternative to confinement. Community beautification projects, landscaping, weed abatement, and clean-up are some of the services provided by Work Release for contracted agencies throughout the county.
