Probation and Restitution Centers (PRCs) are highly structured community-based residential prison diversion programs. The length of stay in the program is based on individual offender/resident needs and program design. Offender/residents participate in group counseling and case management sessions. The social learning environment provides offenders/residents with continuous peer support and challenges in daily living skills. The major learning themes are criminal thinking patterns, life skills, budgeting, personal responsibility and accountability, and employment readiness or skills training. Offender/residents prepare for re-entry into the work environment and transition into the community. The program provides a sentencing alternative and a resource for supervised offenders who are experiencing difficulty complying with their conditions of supervision and meeting their court ordered financial obligations. The program also provides transition assistance to recently released inmates.The PRC program consists of two (2) phases. Phase I, the Intensive Programming Component Phase (IPC) and Phase II, the Work Component Phase (WCP). The total time in the PRC Program shall be based on the individual offender needs and shall not exceed twelve (12) months, unless otherwise stipulated by court order. During the WCP offenders/residents will begin to make payments on their court-ordered financial obligations and pay a daily subsistence fee to the contractor.
