At the Union County SC Work Camp, inmates with good behavior have access to traditional jobs in the public sector during the day. The program offers varying degrees of freedom, some even allowing prisoners to work during the week and return home, serving their sentences on only weekends. Depending on the terms (which change from time to time), inmates may reside in a halfway house or under home confinement when not working. As they near their release date, residents may transition to reintegration programs, with potential offers of full-time employment upon full release.

Work release program initiatives have proven benefits, including increased employment opportunities post-release, accelerated job acquisition, higher post-release earnings, and reduced recidivism rates among participants. Union Co WC is committed to empowering inmates with skills and opportunities for successful reentry into society.

The Detention Center comprises Pretrial and Work Camp Divisions, staffed by 32 Officers who oversee an average population of 100 county/city detainees awaiting trial and inmates serving short sentences from Summary and General Sessions courts, including Family Court sentences. Additionally, up to 20 State Inmate Workers fulfilling state sentences are housed at the Prison Work Camp.

Inmates supervised by officers prepare meals in the Detention Center kitchen, catering to both Prison Work facility inmates and Pretrial Division detainees awaiting trial.

Under the direction of the Detention Center Director, inmate work details are assigned at county buildings, the animal shelter, and the maintenance shop. Inmates from the Prison Work Camp contribute labor to Union County’s Palmetto Pride Litter pickup program and assist Code Enforcement with property cleanups.
