Certain sentenced inmates can be recommended by the sentencing judge to participate in Sheriff's Work Project. If accepted for the program, they are assigned to one of more than 25 work sites throughout the county. They work one or more days per week on a work crew supervised by a Deputy Sheriff. Good time is computed into their sentence and release dates are adjusted accordingly. This good time can be revoked and release dates extended for disciplinary reasons: violations of Sheriff's Work Project rules.

The community benefits from inmate labor provided to groups such as school and park districts, churches, civic groups, government agencies, and non-profit organizations. A work project coordinator receives the requests and staffs the work crews from available resources.
