The Franklin County Regional Jail is very fortunate to have some wonderfully dedicated volunteers, that teach and minister to the inmates housed here. We are very grateful for the time they donate to this facility and we consider them a very important part of the Franklin County Regional Jail Family.
The Franklin County Regional Jail shall include among its obligations to the community the provisions to meet the individual, physical, social, educational, religious and recreational needs of each inmate.
Program participation is limited by size due to security needs and most programs require application for attendance. Acceptance is not automatic and is controlled by security concerns as well as behavioral history of the inmate. Misuse, disruption, as well as non attendance shall result in program removal and denial of re-admittance. Movement to disciplinary segregation shall mean automatic removal and placement in protective custody.

Reaching Individual Successes Everyday
The RISE program was implemented at the Franklin County Regional Jail in attempts to address the problems of recidivism rates. Program participants must apply to be accepted. When accepted, participants will work with the program coordinator to help plan their successful re-entry back into society. All programs are geared toward successful re-entry, including programs to help with anger, morals, relationships and working closely with local non-profit organizations to help with familial interactions. Participants can have continued contact with the RISE Program coordinator for 6 months after release. The program coordinator may provide assistance with job placement, housing or a resource for returning citizens upon release.
Must be a classified state inmate or Alternative Sentenced inmate ordered to programming by a Judge.
Must have a high school diploma/GED or in the process of obtaining your GED. Failure to complete GED is automatic removal from the RISE program.
Must have ample time to complete all program requirements.
No violent offenses. No sex related offenses (with the exception of GED/NCRC classes) or in the cases that the Parole Board has recommended classes.
