BOYLE COUNTY DETENTION CENTER

RECEIVES KENTUCKY’S

FIRST PERFECT SCORE ON REENTRY PROGRAM

April 25, 2022

BOYLE COUNTY KENTUCKY - - - 

REENTRYBoyle County Detention Center has achieved something that has never been done – a perfect score on the  program audit from the Kentucky Department of Corrections. Jailer Brian Wofford explains this unprecedented  accomplishment, “This program is changing the lives of these men. Chaplin and Program Coordinator James  Hunn is making a difference in our men’s lives. No detention center has ever been given a perfect score, which is  directly attributed to James.” 

Inmates that qualify for this program have obtained their community custody qualification and are near their  parole eligibility date. The RP allows an offender to become reacquainted with their families and the community  and gives them a head start seeking employment. These facilities offer vocational training programs, educational  opportunities, and cognitive behavioral programs that can give an offender better options once their incarceration  or supervision has ended. BCDC offers addiction services programming to help those offenders that battle  substance use disorders and Chaplin Hunn adds spiritual guidance and mentorship.  

The audit report states, “Hunn had the respect of the participants and they value his teaching and guidance. Class  times were on point, rules and guidelines were followed accordingly and materials that were used were all  approved.”  

BCDC was commended for the rewards and motivation offered to the inmates to encourage them to excel in the  program. “With all of the motivations offered, participants are eager to learn and correctly complete their work.  WONDERFUL JOB Boyle County Jail and Mr. Hunn.” 

The Kentucky Department of Corrections, Division of Probation and Parole is responsible for overseeing the  Reentry Program (RP). The RP accommodates inmates and is designed to help them integrate back into society  after their incarceration. 

Boyle County Fiscal Court awarded James Hunn with a Certificate of Distinction for his work in the Boyle  County Detention Center. Hunn humbly accepted the recognition, thanking his father James Hunn Sr. for his  influence and guidance.
