Door County Jail Focuses On Getting Inmates Back On Track

 

The Door County Jail continues to provide inmates with the tools they’ll need to get back into the swing of things once they are released. Jail Lieutenant Tammy Sternard says recently the jail partnered with the Door County Job Center to help inmates who have Huber privileges find work.

The job center works with 3-5 inmates each week to assist with various facets of job searching.

Most of the program is completed at the jail, but some individuals are allowed to participate in a work-release program for which they go to the job center on weekdays.

Sternard says inmates also have the opportunity to get their GED while serving time. Thanks to a grant through NWTC, the instructor is provided at no cost. The only cost is the $25 GED test fee, which Sternard says is usually covered through donations.
