Inmate Community Work Program

Inmate Community Work Program

 

The Inmate Community Work Program is comprised of two sub-programs: Graffiti Abatement and Clean and Green.

Graffiti Abatement Program: Graffiti is a constant concern in many communities. The Graffiti Abatement Program is designed to remove unwanted graffiti in Harris County. The graffiti is often perpetrated by gang members who want to mark their territory or send a message to another gang. Graffiti Abatement is a FREE service to all citizens and businesses in the unincorporated areas of Harris County. It aids the community by reducing or eliminating this type of criminal mischief through abatement, making each neighborhood or business safer and aesthetically pleasing for the citizens of Harris County.

The Clean and Green Program: This program allows inmates to work beautifying the community. Projects include making and maintaining parks and other recreation areas; cleaning debris from ponds, lakes, bayous, and other waterways; cleaning drainage ditches; and clearing wood areas.

These programs benefit the community as wall as the inmates by allowing them time out of the jail and performing constructive service.
