INTRODUCTORY STATEMENT/CASE STATUS
Provide an overall assessment incorporating the following elements, as applicable and appropriate:
COMPLETION CODES FOR WORK RELEASES – DESCRIPTIONS AND DEFINITIONS
|01||Breach of condition|
Following the offender’s return to the institution, it became apparent that one or more conditions had been violated, but no administrative action was taken during the course of the temporary absence because the violation went undetected.
Note: Recoding to code 06 will be required once a conviction for a disciplinary offence mentioned in code 06 is obtained.
|02||Detained by police||The offender was detained by the police and remained in police custody beyond the expiry of the work release permit and a warrant was not issued.|
|03||Deceased||The offender died during the time of the work release.|
|04||Did not participate||The offender refused to participate, or was unable to participate, in a work release following the creation of the permit but prior to the start of the release.|
An extension of the time of return specified in the permit will normally be authorized prior to the offender’s return to the institution. However, when the offender is late for reasons beyond his/her control and is unable to contact the institution beforehand, the officer-in-charge or Parole Officer may approve it after the fact.
Note: Recoding will be required if, subsequent to the offender’s return, conditions described in any one of the following codes applies: 01, 06 or 08.
|06||Offender convicted of being under the influence of an intoxicant and/or in possession of contraband upon return to the institution||The offender returned to the institution either late or on time but was subsequently convicted of being under the influence of an intoxicant and/or of being in possession of contraband upon return.|
The offender returned to the institution late but was not declared unlawfully at large and a warrant was not issued.
Note: Recoding will be required if, subsequent to the offender’s return, conditions described in any one of the following codes apply: 01, 06, or 08.
|08||Objective of work release not met||This code should be used when all of the following conditions apply:
Note: Recoding will be required once the violation has been substantiated. Codes 01, 02, 06, 10, or 11 take precedence over code 08.
The offender returned on or before the time specified on the permit.
Note: Recoding will be required if, subsequent to the offender's return, conditions described in any one of the following code definitions apply: 01, 06, 08.

|11||UAL||The offender failed to return to the institution and was declared unlawfully at large.|
|12||Work release terminated||The offender was on an ETA at the same time as the work release and went unlawfully at large while on the temporary absence OR the work release was terminated for reasons beyond the control of the offender, e.g. the host organization no longer had a need for the offender's services.|
