DON: Okay, you're being transported down to jail pending a disciplinary hearing for a positive breathalyzer. Oh, I didn't have that much to drink, Don. You know that. We have a zero tolerance policy here. Oh, man. This is stupid. At any given time, there are up to 243 convicted felons living in the four state work release facilities in Seattle. These felons have been convicted of serious crimes, including sex offenses, robbery and murder. These offenders are nearing the end of their prison sentence and are preparing to re-enter the community. While the state Department of Corrections makes most of the arrests that are needed and transports from these facilities, occasionally they call upon SPD for assistance. This video was produced to give you a basic orientation to the state work release program, its procedures and its operation. It's my belief that by improving the cooperation between our two agencies, we can strengthen both the effectiveness of the program and the safety of the community. NARRATOR: The fact is most felons sentenced to prison are eventually returned to the community at the end of their sentences. Washington state law allows offenders to enter work release during the last six months of their confinement. All offenders in the program are inmates and subject to return to prison if they break the law or don't follow work release rules. Offenders in work release are required to maintain employment, make restitution to victims and attend counseling. They must remain totally alcohol and drug free while in the program. During the 1993-1995 biennium, the four state facilities in Seattle collected over $1,641,768 from inmates to offset the cost of their incarceration. There are currently four state-run work release programs located in King County. In the south precinct, Helen B. Ratcliff Work Release It houses 47 women. East precinct has two state work release facilities. Bishop Lewis Work Release is located at 8th and Cherry and houses 69 men and women. Madison Inn Work Release is located at 102 21st Ave. East and houses 28 men. In the west precinct, the Reynolds Work Release is located at 4th and Jefferson and houses 99 men and women. The work release programs have screening committees which review work release applicant files to determine eligibility for the program. Work release is routinely prohibited for individuals with felony or immigration detainers, and individuals who are unemployable under INS provisions. Drug, violent and sexual offenders often must complete treatment programs prior to coming to work release. In addition, placement in work release can be denied if the victim resides in the area and there are personal safety concerns; the offender has major medical or mental health problems beyond the capacity of the program; the offender is a violent or sexual offender and has failed to participate in required treatment in prison. A plan is established for each individual and this plan is closely monitored. The plan includes their work release schedule, treatment requirements, room and board payments, and restitution payments. In addition, all inmates have to follow standard rules while in the program. These include turning in their wages to the business office which issues checks to offenders from their accounts for approved expenditures. Offenders must have approval from their CCO, community corrections officer, prior to living the facility for any reason; and all movements within the community are documented, including destinations and times of departure or arrival. A log lists the approved times and locations of each individual whenever they leave the building. Freedom inside and outside the program is based on classification level. Classification meetings review inmates progress on their plans and determine their classification level. Good behavior leads to increased time for social outings with family members and other approved sponsors. Before offenders are transferred from prison into work release, people who have enrolled in the state Victim/Witness Notification Program are notified of the pending transfer. Police officers involved in arrests can enroll as witnesses and be notified when the inmate is about to be transferred from prison. For enrollment call 1-800-322-2201. Prior to employment, community corrections officers make telephone and on site contacts with every employer in order to explain the nature of the work release program. Employers are told to call the CCO at work release if the offender is late to work, fails to come to work, or asked to leave work early. "Hi, this is Sean Moore, I'm a community corrections officer at Reynolds and I was just checking up to see how Peter Martinez is doing. No problems? His attendance has been fine?" Narrator: Routine telephone calls and visits are made to each work site to verify the offender's presence. Each facility maintains a photo bank of current residents in the program. "Some of the responsibilities that you have as a sponsor are as follows: you must be at least 21 years of age, residence must be signed out by the sponsor in the presence of staff, so you'll be signing out your sponsor up at the front desk, residents are not to drink alcoholic beverages while on social outings, you can't take them into bars, cocktail lounges, or anything of that nature, residents are not to possess..." Narrator: All visitors and sponsors must submit to a criminal records check and personal interview, prior to receiving approval as a sponsor. Random searches and urinalysis tests are administered several times each month. Inmates who abuse controlled substances or alcohol are usually arrested, given hearings, and often return to prison. "We have a .015 rating, that means you're dirty." The Department of Corrections appreciates the Seattle Police K9 units which have been very effective in helping search work release facilities. "Mr. McCoy, you've heard the recommendations from the committee members as to your allegations. You were found guilty of unaccounted time, which means you didn't go to where you were supposed to be going, and also failing to program, which are both major infractions. With this you've lost custody. I'm going to be terminating you from the program and you can no longer be in work release. You're also losing 30 days of 'good time' and 'earn time' for the month. So you're going to need to be returned to the division of prison so I'm going to ask you to stand up and your CCOs are going to take you back up to the jail. Please stand over there because they're going to need to handcuff you and take you back up to jail. I appreciate your cooperation." Narrator: Inmates who violate the rules are subject to a range of sanctions. Minor infractions can result in assignment of extra work chores at the facility and loss of social actions. Offenders guilty of serious violations can be given longer sentences and return to prison. For serious infractions offenders need to go to jail immediately. Confinement is necessary when: the inmate is violent, or likely to become violent, the inmate will escape if transport is delayed, the inmate is a substantial risk to community members, facility, or staff, or the inmate has committed a new crime. Typically the arrests and transports are done by CCOs. Sometimes police assistance is needed because CCOs are not armed and on weekends and evenings staff cannot leave the facility unattended. Escape procedures start when offenders are more than 15 minutes late returning to work release. Staff immediately call employers, family, police, jail, and hospitals in an attempt to locate the inmate. "Hi, my name is Sean Moore, I work with Reynolds work release. I'm a community corrections officer --" Narrator: If unable to locate the offender, staff ensure an escape warrant is immediately entered into WASIC and NCIC and an All Points Bulletin is issued throughout Washington State. The division of community corrections has a fugitive unit which then begins a search to locate and apprehend these fugitives. This unit works closely with local police departments, FBI, and other law enforcement agencies. Felony escape charges are referred to the prosecutor when a fugitive is apprehended. The division of community corrections has implemented a computer program called - [END VIDEO]
