Employment Opportunities

Our Inmate Workforce has been hard at work with more landscaping and cleanup projects around the city.

Their most recent effort was to cleanup the open space adjacent to the Third Presbyterian Church on Templar Blvd. Under the supervision of Deputies Ashley and Lord, the inmates did a fantastic job taking care of the project in less than 2 hours, and earning them a letter of appreciation from residents in the neighborhood.

The deputies instructed the inmates to pull all fallen branches from the area before using brush cutters to clear the ground. They hauled off a trailer full of debris. You can see below how much the inmate's work improved the condition of the property.

Templar Blvd Improvements

The president of the South Bayview Civic League was inclined to express their appreciation in a letter to Director of Community Corrections Michael O'Toole for the labor performed by the workforce:


On behalf of the civic league, the neighbors and the church congregation, I thank you and your work crew for the fine job they did cleaning up the city property along the storm water ditch on Templar Blvd. It is such a big improvement.

I'm sure some people in the neighborhood think that it's church property and the congregation's responsibility to keep it cleared but they just cannot do it.

As you may know the ditch is scheduled to soon receive an upgrade between Carlton St. and Pythian Ave. including larger culverts. I hope whatever changes are made will reduce the work needed to maintain it.

Please let your men know how much their work is appreciated, not only what they did on Templar but all around town throughout the year.


Peggy Russell, President
South Bayview Civic League

If you see one of the sheriff's Inmate Workforces out working in your neighborhood, we hope you'll take a moment to appreciate the effort.
