Work Release Center
State Assisted Work Release Program is a
contractual agreement between the Lafourche
Parish Sheriff's Office and the State
Department of Corrections. Assignment to a
work release center is a privilege, granted
only after a careful screening process by
the state Department of Corrections.
Candidates must meet stringent guidelines
for consideration in the program.
Essentially, being a model prisoner. With
release imminent, our work release center
offers the inmate an opportunity to earn
funds so as to assist in the transition to
life outside of prison. A job also affords
the inmate an opportunity to learn a skill,
and to prepare for re-entering society. All
inmates are aware that rules must be
followed, and intentional abuse will lead to
re-incarceration, and, in most cases,
additional jail time.
