Smile New to Arkansas prison system, have many questions

Is there anyone in Arkansas who knows or understands the system here? My husband/fiance' is going down soon, got 8 yrs. I believe its 29 days on the year here now, idk. Any info on this or someone who would like to talk... Would be great! He's looking at work release programs & Vo-Tech courses etc! I just need to talk, wondered if he got work release how it works, can I see him, move to where he is at, etc. Thanks!

I'm not familiar with Arkansas, but I've looked up ADC (Arkansas Department of Corrections). Information on putting money on books, accepting phone calls and visitation among other topics.

Looks like there are 2 work release centers:

Mississippi County Work Release Center

Northwest Arkansas Work Release Center

I don't know what the criteria is for getting transferred there, but it may be on the ADC site linked above, or he can ask his Counselor.

HERE is a list of ADC programs with links to more info for each one, including Work Release

Hope this helps!!

Feel free to start with your questions. A lot will depend on his crime of conviction as to the good time he earns. Crime and prior record as well as any institutional record will determine the facility he is housed at. There are specific requirements for work release and certain crimes or prior convictions are not work release eligible. Feel free to PM if you want the conversation to not be posted to the board. The Benton Unit is also a work release unit and there are reentry facilities. There is also the possibility he can apply for an Act 309 trustee position, again depends on crime and time to serve. Fire away with specific questions. Glad you found us but not under these circumstances.
