Through the Jail to Work Unit, inmates are exposed to work intensive programs designed to develop employable skills to assist the inmate in acquiring a job upon release, and reduce recidivism.  Several businesses in Marion County have joined with the Sheriff’s Office and agreed to assist in finding jobs for the graduates of these programs.  As the inmates are learning the skills needed, they are providing a service to the community by working for numerous Governmental Agencies. Jail to Work is comprised of work related programs that includes:

  • Formal vocational training
  • Inmate Worker Programs
  • Work Release Programs
