Centralized Classification Unit (CCU)
The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department’s Bureau of Detention and Correction’s Centralized Classification Units mission is to minimize the potential for predatory behavior and escape, while increasing the potential for facility tranquility within our jails and supporting the management of an ever increasing population.

Out of Custody Programming Detail (OCPD)

Community Release Programs such as Out of Custody Programming Detail and Electronic Confinement are an integral part of the criminal justice system. Working in conjunction with the courts and the Judicial Council, San Bernardino County's Out of Custody Programming Detail provides an alternative method for qualified sentenced inmates to participate in the program. Under the direction of the court, the inmate can be released before his maximum sentence has been completed in order to reestablish ties with family, return to their previous employment, develop personal responsibility and self-sufficiency while they serve the community on their non-work days.
