We offer support to our local community through inmate work crews, mutual aid agreements in fire suppression and with local Law Enforcement Agencies to provide enhanced support through the Crisis Response Team’s, in addition to a youth diversion program for at-risk children. We offer one of the state’s first Enhanced Program Facilities for those inmates who choose to better themselves through positive programming.
