Our Work Release Center at Laurel County Corrections is a great program we have that helps tax payers save countless dollars. We currently have 10 Work Crews that include 1 all- female work release crew that go out and keep our streets clean.
Our work release crews help with numerous organizations and help keep our county clean and well maintained. They have helped with the clean-up efforts from the tornadoes that devastated our county in 2012. They also help with the set-up and clean-up of different events like the World Chicken Festival, the County Fair, club events, and other organizational activities. They help out with the Optimist Club, Rotary Club, Kiwanis Club, The Laurel County Fair Grounds, and downtown London with landscaping. The also help out at the county’s landfill sorting trash and recyclables.

Our Work Release Program consist of lower level offenders and offenders with shortened sentences. Many of the inmates may earn "work credit" and shorten their sentences saving the community tax dollars all while keeping our streets clean and maintained. The Work Release Program also helps the inmates to transition to building a stronger work ethic to take with them back to society once released.
