Work Furlough Program
The Work Furlough Program allows sentenced inmates to continue working their jobs outside the Jail in public or private employment for a regular wage. To be eligible for the program, you must be responsible. Items considered to measure responsibility are: past work history, duration of job, regularity of attendance at work and total criminal record.
You must work in Yuba County or Sutter County unless there is a reciprocal agreement between Yuba County and the County where your job is located. However, in certain jobs such as construction, where it is normal job requirement to move from job site to job site in various counties, this requirement may be waived. You will not be allowed to drive a vehicle while on the program unless it is a job requirement and you must make your own arrangements for transportation to and from work. Acceptance on the program is at the discretion of the Work Furlough Coordinator, the Jail Supervisor or the Jail Commander. The Work Furlough Coordinator may revoke the privileges of work furlough release at any time. Applicants and additional rules may be received by asking any jail deputy. An applicant denied Work Furlough will be informed in writing the reasons for such denial.
