The Chatham County Sheriff's Department Inmate Programs area gives inmates the opportunity to address those issues that may have contributed to their criminal behavior and subsequent incarceration.
While incarcerated, eligible inmates have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of therapeutic, educational and literacy programs. These programs are administered by contracted service providers and volunteers.
The Programs Area also facilitates law library sessions for the inmates, provides a book cart service for reading materials, and maintains barbering supplies and services for the inmates. This area is overseen by the Programs Manager and her staff which includes two Programs Coordinators and six interns.
Because we have partnered with various community agencies, continuing treatment and educational opportunities are available for inmates who are released.
