The Inmate Work Detail

Facility Services staff supervise the Inmate Work Detail, composed of carefully screened inmates who, under direct Deputy Sheriff supervision, complete public works projects that have included the beautification of Old Town, refuse collection at City roadways and highway interchanges, and school and playground clean up and repair. In FY 2012, the Work Detail performed 5,475 hours of service and saved the City approximately $150,000 in labor costs.

In April 2013, the Work Detail participated in the Litter Enforcement Month campaign sponsored by the Alice Feruson Foundation, picking up litter across the City including along Mount Vernon Avenue, around Beatley Library, at the cemetery on North Breckinridge, in Hume Springs and in Four Mile Park.

The following are examples of work performed by the Inmate Work Detail

  • Neighborhood clean ups throughout the City 
  • Landscaping/mulching - Old Town 
  • Furniture moving at City Hall, Courthouse, and other City offices 
  • Park cleans-ups at Chinquapin, Fort Ward and other City parks 
  • Storm debris removal 
  • Lawn care at City fire stations and the Public Safety Center 
  • Landscaping/cleanup at Cora Kelly and George Mason Elementary Schools and Francis Hammond and George Washington Middle Schools 
  • Painting of Gadsby light poles in Old Town
