Transitional Work Program
Formerly known as Work Release, the Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office operates the Transitional Work Program in partnership with and at the direction of the Louisiana Department of Corrections. Upon extensive research and approval, certain qualified offenders are given the opportunity to work and earn money for their use upon their release. These selected offenders must be non-violent and have an acceptable disciplinary record while incarcerated at their previous facilities. Unlike being funded by tax dollars while in local jails or penitentiaries, the offenders now earn money to pay for their incarceration while participating in the Transitional Work Program. The money earned by these offenders is also used to pay for court appointed child support, family support, and to make restitution or pay fines that would hinder their release.
