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.             to top

Community Work Program (CWP)
CWP is located at 925 Hiawatha Place S, Seattle WA 98144

The Community Work Program currently allows District Court to sentence offenders to work crews to perform supervised manual labor for various public service agencies.  The program is designed to provide a diversion from jail for low-level, low-risk offenders and a visible restitution to the community.  Offenders are sentenced directly to the CWP and may work off their fines, regain their driver’s license or complete the terms of their sentence.  CWP projects typically include various types of landscaping, habitat restoration and invasive species removal.  CWP crews function year round and offer services Monday through Saturday.            to top

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.  The alternative uses a cellular device for the electronic monitoring.  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.             to top
