309. Work Release: Selection of Inmates

A. Purpose. The purpose of this regulation is to establish

the secretary's policy regarding the assignment of inmates to

work release status.

B. Responsibility. It is the responsibility of the assistant

secretary for the Office of Adult Services, all wardens,

sheriffs, and community rehabilitation center directors to

implement this regulation and convey its contents to the

inmate population and all affected employees.

C. General. Selection of inmates to participate in work

release programs must be made with the greatest of care.

Selected inmates should be able to benefit from the program

and should have demonstrated their ability to conform to the

rigid standards of conduct expected of those who associate

with the general public.

D. Procedure

1. Inmates at state correctional facilities will be

screened for work release pending parole or pending

discharge. Applications should be filed eight months prior to

parole or discharge dates and arrive at the Office of Adult

Services before the beginning of the seventh month prior to

parole or discharge. The warden of the institution or

supervisor of the unit will indicate his recommendation prior

to forwarding of the application to the Office of Adult

Services.

2. The Office of Adult Services shall ascertain that:

a. the applicant is approved by his warden and is

eligible for work release under the criteria set forth in this

regulation;

b. a bed space exists at a department facility or at a

facility under contract to provide such services to the

department and that the inmate may be housed there in

conformity with Department Regulation 30-14 (see LAC

22:I.309);

c. the inmate is referred to the parole board for a

hearing, if applicable;

d. all applicants are notified of approval or rejection

of the application and the reasons for rejection;

e. upon approval of the parole board or in the case

of approved applicants pending discharge, the Office of

Adult Services shall arrange transfers when necessary and

notify the Office of Finance and Management of the

assignment;

f. the inmate has acknowledged all conditions of

work release prior to transfer and signed documents

indicating his notification of such conditions, such

documents to be received at the Office of Adult Services

prior to transfer or assignment to work release;

g. applications for inmates presently participating in

a department maintenance program may be approved by the

assistant secretary/Adult Services; all other approvals are to

be by the secretary;

h. employment has been verified in the area where

the inmate is to be assigned.

3. A three-member committee appointed by the

assistant secretary for Adult Services will review each

application and a recorded vote shall be taken and kept in the

inmate's record. Any member of the committee voting

against approval shall explain his vote on the voting form. A

majority of votes shall constitute approval.

4. Inmates sentenced to the Department of Corrections

who are in the custody of a sheriff shall not be eligible for a

sheriff's work release program unless those inmates would

be eligible for work release under the terms of this

regulation. Upon application of those inmates either in

person or by a sheriff, the Office of Adult Services shall

ascertain the applicant's eligibility by law and regulation and

certify the eligibility to the secretary for his written

approval.

5. Inmates assigned to a nondepartmental facility such

as the State Police Barracks, upon application and

recommendation of the supervisor of the unit, will be

processed under provisions of this regulation.

6. Inmates assigned to work release either within the

Department of Corrections or in a sheriff's program may not

be employed in an occupation requiring out-of-state travel.

7. All incidents of new crimes or disciplinary

infractions by work releases shall be reported to the Office

of Adult Services which shall compile a yearly report on or

before April 1, of each year, indicating the nature of the

incident, age of offender, original offense, length of

sentence, prior criminal record, and any other characteristics

found to be predictive of success or failure. The Office of

Adult Services will include in the report any suggested

changes in eligibility standards dictated by the experiences

of the previous year.

E. Selection Criteria

1. Only inmates within six months of their earliest

release eligibility date are eligible.

2. Inmates must be approved by the parole board

where eligibility is based on the parole release date.

3. Inmates must have the recommendation of the

warden or appropriate nondepartment supervisor.

4.a. Inmates convicted of the following offenses are not

eligible:

i. aggravated arson;

ii. aggravated kidnapping;

iii. aggravated or attempted aggravated rape;

iv. forcible rape;

v. murder (first degree);

vi. habitual offenders sentenced under R.S.

b. Inmates, other than first offenders, serving

sentences for the following offenses are not eligible:

i. armed robbery;

ii. attempted armed robbery;

iii. attempted murder;

iv. second degree murder.

5. Inmates with arrest or institutional records which

reveal compulsive or habitual use of violence against the

person are not eligible.

6. Inmates currently requiring frequent medical

treatment are not eligible.

7. Inmates found guilty by a court or institutional

disciplinary board of escape or attempted escape within the

last seven years are ineligible.

8. Inmates who have demonstrated an overtaggressive

pattern of homosexual behavior to the extent it

would disrupt the smooth daily operation of the program are

ineligible.

9. Inmates whose institutional records reflect

consistent signs of bad work habits, lack of cooperation or

good faith, or other undesirable behavior are ineligible.

10. First offenders will have priority for work release.

Should vacancies exceed the requirements for first offenders,

selection would be made from second offenders and so on.

F. Effective Date. The effective date of this regulation is

January 1, 1979. It will not apply to inmates approved for

work release prior to that date.
