The Programs Section is responsible for all non-operational aspects of the Work Release Program, all departmental Case Workers, and a variety of services/programs designed to address the more individual needs of inmates/detainees in the custody of the SCCDOC:

  • Pastoral Visits:
    Special clergy visits are allowed with proper authorization. A request form must be submitted for each visit.
  • Alcoholics Anonymous Meetings:
    AA meetings are held twice a month. Volunteers from community AA groups are utilized to facilitate these meetings. Each volunteer is carefully screened before the final approval to participate.
  • All religious services, materials and holiday service programming.
    The Volunteer Ministers Program is open to bona fide clergy members who wish to volunteer their time for one hour on Sundays and are approved to minister in the facility. Contact the Programs Coordinator for an application form at 636.949.3003, ext. 4409.

    The SCCDOC also offers baptism services if the Ministry requests the ceremony based on inmate / detainee interest.
  • Special Visits
  • Notary Public Services:
    Notary Public services are provided to inmates/detainees at no charge.
