Volunteers & Program Providers
A Jail Program Provider is someone who has been granted a security clearance to come into the jail and provide services to inmates. This work may or may not involve direct inmate contact. A Jail Program Provider may be a paid employee or an unpaid volunteer, an individual working alone, or a representative of a private or public organization.
Jail program providers must meet the following minimum qualifications:
Each prospective program provider will be interviewed by the Inmate Services Coordinator to determine his or her suitability and eligibility. The Mendocino County Sheriff's Office will then conduct a background check using your name, date of birth, social security number and driver's license number. All traffic tickets should be taken care of before you apply to become a jail program provider. Any outstanding warrants or recent incarcerations will result in refusal by the Mendocino County Sheriffs Office to grant you a security clearance.
