Work Release Program
Correction (COR) CHAPTER 43, ARTICLE 6-A
§ 151. Work Release Program. The department shall establish work
release programs for prisoners sentenced to New York City correctional
institutions. The commissioner may extend the limits of the place of
confinement of a prisoner as to whom there is reasonable cause to
believe he will honor his trust by authorizing him to participate in a
work release program in the community on a voluntary basis while
continuing as a prisoner of the institution or facility in which he is
confined. An extension of limits shall be under such prescribed
conditions and for such reasonable hours or reasonable periods of time
as the commissioner deems necessary. Such extension of limits may be
withdrawn at any time.
