The Sandusky County Community Corrections Board, in cooperation with the Sheriff, Sandusky County Commissioners, and County/Municipal Courts developed the Sandusky County Community Work Program. The program began January 1999.
The purpose of CWP is to provide life, work, and educational skills to low level, non-violent, criminal offenders in a secure setting; to provide a forum for those criminal offenders to repay the community in a positive way through their community work; to reward those criminal offenders for positively participating; and to relieve some of the county jail occupancy pressures.
The Sandusky County Community Work Program is funded as a public service project with CDBG funds from Sandusky County and the City of Fremont. The CWP serves non-violent criminal offenders who meet the low to moderate income criteria. Work projects are done for departments of Sandusky County and other county entities such as cities, villages and townships.
During 2007 eighty-four (84) CWP participants performed 6,632 man hours of work for thirty-three (33) different organizations of Sandusky County. Projects ranged from trash pick up to light construction. The program granted 586 good days to participants, saving Sandusky County $38,090 by early release. Work projects are scheduled with the program coordinator.
