Program Description

  Pre-Release and Re-entry Services

The Pre-Release and Re-entry Services (PRRS) is a correctional program that provides community-based residential and non-residential alternatives to secure confinement for sentenced adult offenders in which they engage in work, treatment, education, family involvement, and other services as they transition back into the community. The program primarily serves inmates who are within one year of release and are sentenced to Department of Correction and Rehabilitation (DOCR). In addition, the program provides re-entry services to federal- and state-sentenced inmates and federal probationers who are within one year of release and who are returning to Montgomery County and the greater Washington Metro area upon release.

The residential program, located in Rockville, is a 144-bed 24/7 community corrections facility that houses female and male offenders. The non-residential Home Confinement program allows individuals to live in their homes, although they are required to report to the Pre-Release Center several times a week for drug testing and other required programming. The program provides for all aspects of care, custody, and security of all offenders on the program. Staff provide rehabilitative and case management services, as well as perform security responsibilities to maintain operations, offender accountability, and to ensure safe clean and orderly program operations.
