Hall County Correctional Institute serves to meet the workforce
needs of the county and city while fulfilling an obligation to the
Georgia Department of Corrections by providing safe and secure housing
for inmates in compliance with applicable policies. Under contract
with the Georgia Department of Corrections, the institution houses
240 inmates and, in return, the state pays Hall County $20 per day,
per inmate, or approximately $1.7 million annually.
Hall County Correctional Institute provides an inmate labor force
to the county, city, municipalities and other government agencies,
thereby providing a work force at a significant savings. Some 40
to 50 inmate details work daily for county departments including
Parks and Leisure, Road Maintenance, Resource Recovery and Solid
Waste, as well as Gainesville City Public Works and Parks departments,
performing a multitude of job tasks.
Georgia's Pardons and Parole Board and/or Department of Corrections
mandates that inmates complete some or all of the following programs
prior to release: General Education Development (GED), Bible Study,
Victim Impact, Family Violence, Substance Abuse and Alcoholics Victorious.
