Sheriff putting inmates to work in New Hanover County

Friday, June 27th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — New Hanover County roads are cleaner thanks to criminals.

Today, the sheriff announced a new inmate work crew.

Inmates will clean up trash and debris on the side of New Hanover County roads and highways, as well as work in other places in the area.

Sheriff Ed McMahon says this is a way of providing inmates with productive work while also giving back to the community.

“Right now they’re also working at the landfill, and they’re working at the recycle plant,” McMahon said. “We’re just trying to get the inmates motivated, keep them from just sitting around, laying around and give back to the community.”

McMahon says that for each week the inmates in this program work, they will receive one day off of their sentences.

So far, the crew has picked up around 2,000 pounds of trash.
