Correctional Work Center

The goal of Rutherford County Correctional Work Center is to provide inmates with the opportunity to re-enter society with the skills necessary to lead a law abiding, productive life and to be better prepared to transition back into the community without sacrificing public safety.

Our Mission begins with providing inmates with solid work ethics and programs with the objective of releasing them back into our communities with a clear direction of their future. We accomplish this by providing structured educational, vocational, substance abuse and work release opportunities. Through our sound security practices and classification process, we strive to provide a safe and humane environment for both the offender and staff.

In addition to the multiple programs, inmates at the Rutherford County Correctional Work Center provide many hours of community services to our surrounding Towns, Cities, State and Government Municipalities that is known as our Community Service Work Crew. The Correctional Work Center strives to operate its facility at the most cost effective and efficient way possible. The total monthly savings for the city/county averages around $150,000 by utilizing this inmate labor for community work.
