In an attempt to satisfy the needs of a Kenosha County based jail alternative program for those sentenced who pose a low risk to the public, the Kenosha County Community Service Work Crew was restructured in 1992. This program has grown to an operation that can manage over 100 sentenced inmates. The inmates that qualify for this program are placed at a variety of supervised locations throughout the community where they perform tasks for nonprofit organizations.
In exchange for this time worked, credit for time towards their release is awarded. The success of this program is measured in both actual dollars saved by the work performed by inmate members at the various duties assigned, and by reducing the time spent confined in the county jail system.
