CCAP, formerly Day Reporting, holds offenders accountable to a weekly itinerary directed at involving the offender in a continuum of structured programs. The goal of CCAP is to assist offenders in changing those behaviors that have contributed to their being charged with a crime. CCAP provides on-site services as well as referrals to community-based services. Random drug tests are conducted to monitor for illegal drug use and consumption of alcohol. Offenders participating in CCAP receive an individual needs assessment and are scheduled for a variety of programs.
The Community Work Program (CWP) was closed as part of King County's 2021-2022 biennial budget.
Prior to its permanent closure, the program had been suspended since March 2020 as a precaution against COVID-19.
CWP allowed various courts to sentence offenders to work crews to perform supervised manual labor for various public service agencies. The program was designed to provide a diversion from jail for low-level, low-risk offenders and be a visible restitution to the community. Offenders were sentenced directly to CWP to work off their fines, regain their driver’s license or complete the terms of their sentence. CWP projects typically included various types of landscaping, habitat restoration and invasive species removal. CWP crews functioned year-round and offered services Wednesday through Sunday.

Electronic Home Detention allows offenders to serve all or some portion of their pre-trial and/or sentenced time at home. Offenders are monitored electronically and are confined to their homes, except when following a set schedule that may include attendance at work, school or treatment. To insure compliance the offender is equipped with an electronic bracelet in order to allow monitoring. Our office offers RF cellular device monitoring, GPS and alcohol monitoring in conjunction with electronic home detention if ordered by the court. The Department is immediately alerted if the equipment has been tampered with or the offender is not within the required distance of the monitoring device.
The Intake Services Unit provides information to the court to expedite the release of appropriate defendants awaiting adjudication or to ensure that offenders are not incarcerated when other appropriate alternatives are available. ISU implements administrative court orders which release individuals on personal recognizance pending disposition of their charges.
Work Education Release (WER) was closed as part of King County's 2021-2022 budget.
Prior to its permanent closure, Work Education Release had been suspended since March 2020 as a precaution to limit the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19.
Work Education Release was an alcohol- and drug-free residential alternative for offenders who were employed or enrolled in one of the County's special treatment courts. When not at work or treatment, offenders were required to be in the WER facility. Random drug testing was used to monitor for use of illegal drugs and consumption of alcohol. Offenders paid restitution, child support or court costs as required by the Court. Offenders also were involved in a case management process that directed them to structured programs and/or treatment.
