February 7, 2020

Currently there is not a work release facility in Everett.

On Tuesday the State Department of Corrections will be holding an advisory committee meeting on siting a work release facility in Everett or elsewhere in Snohomish County.

The facility would likely house 100 work release beds and serve over 600 people in the course of a year. The public is invited to observe the committee meeting and gain a better understanding of what may be proposed for our area.

The meeting will be:

EVENT: Work Release Expansion Local Advisory Committee – Snohomish County

DATE: Tuesday, Feb. 11, 2020

WHEN: 4 – 6 p.m.

WHERE: Everett Branch Library, 9512 Evergreen Way, Everett, WA 98204

The Washington Department of Corrections is expanding its work release program. Currently, there are 12 work release facilities across the state, serving 647 men and women. The legislatively approved expansion will add 200 bed spaces in underserved counties. Snohomish and surrounding counties have been identified as having fewer work release beds than needed for their geographic area and are being considered for expansion.
