Community Corrections Centers

Work Release, Community Service and House Arrest

Work Release 
The Work Release Program enables the offender to pay restitution, courts costs and fines, child support payments and other debts. All employed offenders are required to pay a specified percentage of each pay for room and board. The offender is also allocated sufficient funds for travel expenses during the week.

Offenders who have been ordered by the Court to work release are classified as minimum custody. The Work Release Program is a key component in reintegrating the offender back into the community.

Community Service
Offenders from the Community Corrections Centers perform community service to assist county agencies and non-profit organizations. All offenders incarcerated at the Community Corrections Centers are eligible for community service work.

During 2013, there were 191,520 hours of in house community service performed by both male and female offenders. In addition, there were 30,190 hours of off campus community service completed at 30 sites. An average of 188 offenders performed community service each month.

House Arrest
The House Arrest Program is located within the Men's Community Corrections Center, and operates on a 24-hour basis. House Arrest involves a philosophy of strictly limiting an offender's movement within the community through GPS electronic monitoring.

Serious violations of house arrest will result in the offender's removal to maximum custody at the Bucks County Correctional Facility.
