Inmate Services Job Fair for In-Custody Inmates

Event: Inmate Services Job Fair for In-Custody Inmates



Location: Pre Trial Detention Facility

800 S. Victoria Avenue, Ventura, CA 93009



Date & Time: August 26, 2010 8:00 AM - Noon



Unit Responsible: Detention Services – Inmate Services Unit



Narrative:



The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department has a long-standing commitment in assisting inmates in custody through a variety of inmate services programs in our jails. On Thursday, August 26, 2010, the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department will be sponsoring the first In-Custody Job Fair for female inmates housed at the Pre-Trial Detention Facility in Ventura. A Job Fair for male inmates was held at the Todd Road Jail Facility in Santa Paula in 2009.



Ten to fifteen local employers will be invited to participate in this worthwhile event. In addition to employers, invitations will be extended to county and community-based organizations to provide valuable resources and/or information to those individuals nearing release from custody.



Approximately 60 female inmates enrolled in vocational and educational programs will be able to participate in the job fair. This event will give participants an opportunity to fill out applications, turn in resumes and interview with potential employers. All participating inmates have been preparing for the event by attending a variety of in-custody programs that have prepped them with the job skills necessary to interface professionally with potential employers.



The Sheriff’s Department is committed to its mission of providing the programs and resources necessary to reduce recidivism and to assist offenders in becoming productive members of our community. We feel strongly that this can only be achieved if there is a collaborative effort between our department and the community. There are a number of State and Federal incentives available to employers who hire ex-felons. The Sheriff’s Department urges all potential employers interested in participating in this event to contact the Inmate Services Unit at (805) 933-8561.
