Programs

The San Joaquin County Sheriff's Office offers a wide range of programming and services for both sentenced and unsentenced inmates. Programs and services are made available with the intent to provide the opportunity for inmates to be returned back to the community in equal or better condition both physically and psychologically than when received.

PARTNERSHIP WITH OTHER AGENCIES

The Sheriff's Office collaborates with a number of Community Based Organizations as well as other county agencies to ensure that inmates are receiving quality programs and services which they can continue upon their release.

The County Office of Education provides GED, Adult Diploma, Life Skills, Ownership/Re-Entry, and Office Technology/Job Readiness classes.

The Sheriff's Office contracts with Friends Outside, which is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for families, children, and communities impacted by incarceration. Parenting, Creative Conflict Resolution, Anger Management, Fresh Start (Substance Abuse), Women's Wellness, Dads Peer Support, and Individual Case Management are programs and services currently being offered by Friends Outside.

The Sheriff's Office also collaborates with other non-profit and county agencies such as the Salvation Army, El Concilio, Delancey Street, Valley Community Counseling (52-week Domestic Violence program) WorkNet, Child Support, Human Services Agency, and Correctional Health/Mental Health Care.

THE FUTURE

Currently, the Sheriff's Office is offering a vocational program called C-TECH. C-TECH' s objective is to provide students with the necessary skills and credentials to obtain an entry-level position in a high-demand occupation. Using hands-on training with portable equipment, inmates have the opportunity to earn a certificate in Introduction to Telecommunications, Network Cabling for both fiber optic and copper-based systems, Home Entertainment Residential Audio/Video Systems, Introduction to Telephone Systems, and Connecting to Business. Upon completion of each course, inmates earn an Industry-Recognized Certificate from CTECH.

One of the goals of the Sheriff's Office is to expand the vocational training opportunities. The Sheriffs Office is currently working with the County Office of Education to provide a Forklifting/Warehousing and Pre-Carpentry program. The Sheriffs Office will seek collaboration from local community-based organizations as well as our local county agencies to help with job placement and general assistance for those inmates who successfully complete the programs.

RECREATION

Yards are provided in each housing unit. Various recreational equipment (depending on location and security level) is also available for use. At the Honor Farm organized activities such as softball, handball, and basketball are supervised after inmate work hours and on weekends by recreation staff.

This fund is derived primarily from commissary purchases made by the inmates.

RELIGIOUS SERVICES

Services are available weekly at the Honor Farm and general population housing units.
