Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office Community Corrections provides State Public Act 511 (PA511) and locally funded jail and prison diversion programs and sanctioning options for eligible persons at all stages of the criminal justice process.
The CWP is an alternative to incarceration program that substitutes community labor, rather than incarceration, for carefully selected offenders. The Work Program provides service to local municipalities and other non-profit organizations throughout Washtenaw County.
Correctional Services is staffed by civilian employees and supported by a number of volunteers. Together they offer programming aimed at reducing recidivism by providing a variety of programming meant to meet the needs of inmates housed in the facility.
