The Genesee County Jail's Weekend Work Detail consists of non-violent, low-risk individuals who are sentenced by courts to work, in lieu of incarceration. Inmates are sentenced to report to the Jail from 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM on Saturdays and Sundays for a specified period of time. Correction Officers are responsible for the supervision of the inmates and organizing their work assignments. Jobs usually consist of manual labor details, such as trash pick-up along highways, painting, and other labor intensive types of work. The Work Detail performs jobs for municipalities and their affiliates.
If any not-for-profit organization is interested in obtaining the services of the Weekend Work Detail, they should contact Jail Superintendent Bill Zipfel at (585) 343-0838.
