Program Description

  Pre-Release and Re-entry Services

The Pre-Release and Re-entry Services Division (PRRS) 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 to prepare them for release. The program primarily serves inmates who are within one year of release and who are sentenced to DOCR. In addition, the program also 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 at the 144-bed Pre-Release Center in Rockville, has a capacity to serve individuals who live within the Center's one female and three male housing units. 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 for meetings with counselors.
