Correctional Institute

The Hall County Correctional Institution serves to meet the workforce needs of the county and cities 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 Institution provides an inmate labor force to the county its cities and other government agencies, thereby providing a workforce 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 & Recreation departments, performing a multitude of job tasks. In 2013, work details performed an estimated $2.5 million in free labor for the county.

In 2014, the Correctional Institution began an innovative re-entry program (REACT) which provides an opportunity for Hall and Dawson residents returning to the area from state prison to get intensive programming, educational upgrades, and employment prior to their release on parole or probation.

Each offender assigned to the REACT program has completed a risk and needs assessment program plan. Based on this assessment, each offender is placed on a track to complete programs which address the needs unique to that offender. The goal of the program is to reduce government costs, reduce criminal recidivism, promote public safety and foster partnerships that will support the offender's transition back into the community.
