The Lake County Sheriff’s Department is offering a Community Workforce program. The program allows non-violent inmates to volunteer their time and work in the community (known as the Inmate Road Crew). The inmates are transported and are under constant watch by Lake County Sheriff’s Officers.
The officers in charge of this program thoroughly check each inmate’s background before they start participating in the workforce. Each inmate must have a non-violent history to qualify for this program.
The Lake County Sheriff’s Community Workforce program was designed to assist cities and community-based organizations within Lake County with lawn mowing, trash removal, trimming of bushes, picking up tree limbs and spruce-ups.
The inmates work as a team and through this program it helps build up their self-esteem by making them feel good about assisting and giving back to their community and its residents.
If you would like the Lake County Sheriff’s Workforce to come and assist in your community or help your organization, call (219) 648-6987. We would be happy to speak with you regarding our Community Workforce Program and/or schedule an appointment.
