Programs for Inmates

The Tulare County detention facilities offer a variety of programs for inmates, designed to teach inmates new skills and to help them re-enter society successfully.

The Residential Substance Abuse Treatment Program, also known as the RSAT program, provides substance abuse treatment to inmates. This grant-funded program operates from the Men’s Correctional Facility and houses up to 64 inmates. Inmates admit themselves to the program voluntarily, although they must meet classification guidelines to qualify. Inmates learn positive lifestyle changes, behavior modification and life skills.

The Women’s Residential Substance Abuse Treatment, also known as WRAST, provides between four and 12 months of substance abuse treatment for up to 25 inmates at the Pre-Trial Facility in Unit 4B. The program promotes positive behavior changes and prepares inmates for re-entry into society by teaching the knowledge and skills to avoid substance abuse. Inmates enter the WRAST program through the court or by request through green slips if inmates meet the classification guidelines.

The Gang Awareness Parenting Program, or GAPP, provides services to inmates and their families, who live in certain cities of Tulare County. The program teaches how gangs affect society and teaches parents about gang prevention in children.

The Transitional Program helps inmates successfully transition into society. Inmates eligible for the program have 90 days remaining on their sentences. Participants attend up to 13 sessions focused on designing an individualized transitional discharge plan.

The Good News Jail & Prison Ministry provides chaplain services and organizes religious programs in all facilities through staff and jail ministry volunteers. This program assists with death notifications and emergency notifications to family members when requested by jail command staff.

The Day Reporting Center offers the engraving program. Inmates learn engraving and vinyl application on vehicles. After completing the training program, inmates receive a certificate to give to the inmates’ future employers.
