Work Release

The Work Release Program is to assist inmates who have been sentenced by the court system to serve their allotted sentence and still remain employed at their current work environment. The Work Release Program allows inmates the opportunity to support their families, pay their fines, and serve their court ordered sentence. All candidates must meet the qualifications and be approved by the Sheriff.


The Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003 (PREA) was signed into law by President George W. Bush on September 4, 2003. After nationwide data collection conducted by the Bureau of Justice Statistics, final rules for facilities governed by PREA became effective on August 20, 2012.

The Cavalier County Sheriff’s Office is committed to PREA compliance, and makes every effort to provide a sexually safe environment for everyone committed to our custody.

The Cavalier County Sheriff’s office maintains a zero tolerance policy toward all forms of sexual abuse and sexual harassment of inmates in our correctional facilities. Employees, Volunteers, Contractors, and inmates will all be held accountable to established PREA Standards, and all are provided with training and information regarding their rights and responsibilities under this law.

Every reported incident of sexual harassment or sexual abuse will be investigated and documented by a qualified investigator.
