SCOPE OF WORK: Residents receive help transitioning from a life of crime to one of responsibility and productivity. This process includes teaching life skills and providing job readiness training. Newly placed residents are subject to a highly structured environment. As treatment and rehabilitation goals are achieved, offenders earn the privilege of decreased structure. Security measures include 24-hour custodial supervision, closed circuit surveillance cameras and frequent census checks. The Center accommodates pre-trial and alternative to incarceration programs.
