Plummer Community Correction Center
Plummer Community Correction Center (PCCC) is a multi-faceted facility that currently manages and supervises male and female offenders who are participating in traditional work release (WR) and Crest (substance abuse treatment). PCCC also employs a corps of offenders, at an established wage structure, as workers for the facility. These workers are placed in jobs that offer skills training, cultivate good work habits, utilize existing talent to benefit the DOC, foster social appropriateness, and teach responsibility. They provide support to Department staff in the areas of food service, maintenance, telephone operations, housekeeping/janitorial, grounds keeping, and laundry service for residents.
PCCC also operates community work projects that provide service to the local community, including clean up, snow removal, small repairs, and other supervised work. Newly received work release offenders in orientation phase and weekenders are assigned to community service projects. A typical weekender is serving time for DUI or under Family Court commitment. They remain at PCCC from 6:00 p.m. Friday to 6:00 p.m. on Sunday. This is done in an effort to teach offenders responsibility and provide a measure of reparation to the community.

Programs For Inmates
- Work Release
This program provides a structured program that allows gradual transition from prison life to full-time living in the community and diversion options for the courts. This program presents an opportunity and means for the reintegration of offenders through participation in work, education, court mandated and voluntary treatment, training and skills building, and counseling programs, while the Department maintains the safety of the public.
An offender enters the work release program by order of a court or is classified to participate by DOC officials. Offenders normally stay in work release less than one year, with the average stay of four to six months. Work release participants typically work for private employers. They must display pro-social behaviors such as honesty, responsibility, and accountability.
Random substance abuse testing is mandatory throughout their stay at PCCC. While employed full-time, offenders must pay a $25 per week room and board fee and $25 toward any court obligations that include costs, fines, child support, and victim compensation. Persons working part-time pay $15 per weekly for the same obligations.
Through an established, "Phase System" (Phase I - VI), offenders are permitted to spend time with an approved host, and to attend worship service, take care of personal shopping, etc. As they progress through the phases, they are granted increased freedom and responsibility. Routine and random curfew checks are conducted and occasional home visits.
CREST is the second component of Delaware’s substance abuse program. It is based on the therapeutic community model, which allows inmates recovering from substance abuse to continue their treatment while they transition into the community. As a rule, offenders work during the day and return to Plummer at night for therapy, counseling, or treatment.
The CREST program usually lasts for six months. The first three months are spent entirely at Plummer, where offenders engage in full-time substance abuse treatment. During the next three months, offenders become involved in the work-release portion of the program and go through the following phases:
- Entry, evaluation, and orientation: Offenders get used to life outside of prison.
- Primary: Counselors and offenders explore the challenges and issues faced by individual offenders and prepare appropriate responses to minimize the likelihood of relapse.
- Job-seeking: Offenders develop job seeking and interview skills.
- Work release: Offenders maintain residence at CREST while working in the community
