Reentry Services History

Reentry Services began in 2007. Sheriff A. Lane Cribb had a vision for serious and violent offenders, who have been incarcerated in state institutions, and are considered to be at high risk of recidivism. The sentenced felons are transferred to the Georgetown Detention Center from SC Dept. of Corrections to go through an intense training/case management program while incarcerated Here. The Reentry Program accepted the first SCDC inmates in February of 2007.

The program is structured to assist inmates to become productive citizens in their desired communities. This is accomplished through a comprehensive case management approach, and is intended to assist offenders in acquiring the life skills needed to succeed in the community and become law-abiding citizens. Successful graduates will receive case management services for 1 year after release.

Debbie Barr and Sheriff CribbSheriff Cribb saw the need to provide intense services to the SCDC inmates who are mostly repeat offenders with sentences of 5-25 years. The inmates have very little if any work experience and are lacking social/interpersonal skills. In 2007 Debbie Barr was hired as Program Director seen here accepting the Founders Day Law Enforcement Community Partner Award with Sheriff Cribb.

***Pre-sentenced detainees receive Workkeys Instruction weekly. Volunteers from the Knights of Columbus come to the GCDC weekly to teach Reading, Math and Locating Information.
