Community Corrections Programs
CCNO recognizes the need to have offenders perform community service for the public. Community corrections programs also enable offenders to remain employed while serving their sentence.
Community Public Works: Inmates are assigned to perform community service at various sheriffs departments, parks, municipal or county properties or non-profit agencies. They receive earned credit time but no pay. CCNO or supervising agency provides the transportation. For more information, please see the Community Security Policy.
WAM (Workers Assisting Maintenance): Inmates are assigned to perform community service work for the CCNO Maintenance Department. They receive earned credit time but no pay.
HITT (Helping Inmates Through Training): Job placement program in which inmates are employed and paid by area employers and placed on the work release program. Inmates are required to pay 25 percent of their net pay for jail and court costs. Employer transports inmates to/from work. For more information, please see the Community Security Policy.
Work Release: This program allows inmates to maintain their current employment while serving non-working time at CCNO. Inmates are required to pay 25 percent of their net pay for jail and court costs. They must provide their own transportation to/from work. For more information, please see the Community Security Policy.
Electronic Monitoring/House Arrest: Screened applicants are assigned by the court to the program. An ankle bracelet is placed on an offender's ankle and they are monitored while in the community. Offenders can continue working or attend court ordered programs while restricted to their home at specified times. All participants must pay to be in the program unless declared indigent by the court. Placement varies from 15 days to 6 months. For more information, please see the Electronic Monitoring/House Arrest Policy. A case study was completed by our service provider, BI, Inc. You can review the case study on BI, Inc.'s web page.
