The answer is that they can and sometimes will test work release inmates everyday - before and after their shift..Read more
This sounds like some sort of work release program. He is probably a few months from the door and they are allowing him to get a job before he's out so that his re-entry will be smooth and successful. Getting a job after you've been locked-up is hard. The ones that get jobs and keep them are the ones that are least likely to re-offend, violate or just feel hopeless and commit another crime to pay the bills. InmateAidRead more

Inmates must return to the Department's custody at the end of each workday. Their transportation is often provided, if they are not providing transportation then the "ride" would have to be approved.Read more

Work release is an extension of the time you are serving. Your release date is when they will let you go home. Inmates in a work release program are being prepared for re-entry and have been given some freedoms that other inmates do not have. But, they are still inmates until they receive their release.Read more
