History of the V.R.I.C.

The Vocational Rehabilitation Impact Center was formerly known as the Boot Camp until July of 2012. Sheriff Michael F. Sheahan began developmental discussions for the Boot Camp in 1992. A change in state legislation allowed the county to begin an impact incarceration program for persons who would otherwise be sentenced to prison. The Boot Camp opened in 1997 and when he took office in 2007, Sheriff Thomas J. Dart pledged to continue the mission of comprehensive rehabilitation. Under Sheriff Dart’s guidance, V.R.I.C.’s mission is expanding to include an Urban Farm, a carpentry program, a computer recycling program, a composting program, a solar energy installation training program and being classified as an official G.E.D. testing site.
