Work Release Program

Tippecanoe County Community Corrections Work Release Program affords the opportunity for participants to seek gainful employment and become employed all while being housed at the Work Release Facility. Once employed participants turn in a weekly schedule that is verified by an officer on a weekly basis to ensure compliance with all rules and regulations. Participants are allowed to earn privileges through good behavior and positive actions which include earned passes, the ability to attend family events, the ability to have food delivered to the facility and blue passes which allow a participant to go home for up to 8hrs. Participants are also encouraged once employed to continue on with their education, whether, it be attending and completing their General Education Degree or attending and graduating College.

Each participant meeting the criteria will receive an Indiana Risk Assessment System (I.R.A.S.). The IRAS is then reviewed with the participant and the case manager works with the participant to create a case plan focusing on the risks/needs of the participant and integrating Evidence Based Practices.

The purpose of the case plan is to give guidance to the participant in completing court ordered tasks that may include cognitive based programs, such as:
  • Thinking for A Change 3.1
  • Intensive Outpatient Program
  • Intermediate Addictions Program
There are also self-improvement programs they may be referred to, such as:
  • Anger Management
  • 12 Step Meetings for alcohol and or substance abuse
  • Parenting Classes
  • Money Management
By providing goal oriented case plans for the participants to follow we assist in providing an opportunity for a smooth transition into them becoming a productive member of society. Participants must be capable of working full time (at least 35 hours per week). Participant are however limited to working 2 jobs and/or 70 hours per week.
