MDOC to Transfer State Inmate County Workers to Community Work Centers to Save Money

JACKSON, Miss. – Mississippi prison heads are removing state inmates from the county work programs.

Inmates in the programs will be moved to Mississippi Department of Corrections’ 17 community work centers, where the inmates will still be available to perform work for counties. This will go into effect Aug. 1.

Thirty Mississippi counties take part in the Joint State County Work Programs.

MDOC commissioner Marshall Fisher says the move is a more efficient use of taxpayer dollars and will allow MDOC to redirect $3.2 million to other budget needs.
