Allen County Work Release Center is a minimum-security work release facility operated by the Allen County Sheriff’s Department under IC 11-12-5-2. The center has 100 beds for a current capacity of 84 men and 16 women. ACWR is a receiving agency for both misdemeanor and felony offenders being sentenced out of Allen Superior and Circuit Courts. The program accepts federal pre-release placements and federal probation supervision violations pursuant to a contract with the US Marshals Service in addition to addressing local court referrals.
The mission of the Allen County Work Release Program is to positively affect the needs of both the local criminal justice system and the individual needs of defendants. By addressing both parties, the Sheriff’s work release program serves the public by offering a safe alternative to jail or prison at a fraction of the cost of incarceration. The local community is the ultimate benefactor of our mission at work release in that by addressing the needs of the system and the defendant, local recidivism rates are positively affected.
The ACWR program is a division of the Allen County Sheriff’s Department. The staff consists of a Director, business staff who are responsible for case management duties, and a compliment of corrections staff who attend the facility’s daily operations. The center offers ongoing training to further educate and train its staff in the supervision of inmate populations.
This program is restricted to voluntary participants. All prospective participants are carefully screened before acceptance. Program participants are required to sign a Behavioral Contract and adhere to stringent rules and regulations. We have a performance rated phase system for our participants. All participants wages are handled by the ACWR Staff, and all program violators are returned to jail or prison.

The Allen County Work Release program carefully screens each individual being referred for placement to ensure public safety and to find individuals who will benefit most from our programming. Each referral is subjected to the following screening levels before he or she can be found acceptable for placement:
The instant offense must comply with statutory and policy guidelines to be found acceptable. Staff reviews information such as the Pre-sentence investigation, Affidavit for Probable Cause, Petition to Revoke, and Court Information for each cause number.
A defendant’s criminal history is carefully checked by reviewing rap sheets, criminal courts records, and booking records. The criminal history is an essential part of the screening and is the most common cause for finding a defendant ineligible. Some areas considered are the length of the criminal history, the nature of prior offenses, and the patterns of criminal history.
A very important element of the screening process is an interview conducted by staff with the defendant. A defendant is asked numerous questions in areas such as their living situation, education, family background, drug and alcohol abuse, and employment. Not only is the information being gathered important, but also the way in which defendants answer questions and the attitude in which they present themselves is also measured. This is an important indicator to the interviewer as to the possible manageability of the defendant in a work release setting.
Once the above phases are completed, the staff complies all of the information received and considers whether or not a defendant meets the legal criteria and is the desired type of candidate for programming. The court is notified of the results.
Defendants included under the following categories are considered to be INELIGIBLE for placement:
Need acute medical or psychiatric attention
Defendants who fall within the following guidelines and who are not listed in Part 1 are considered to be ELIGIBLE for placement:
General eligibility criteria:
Other areas of consideration:
