Inmate Work Crew Assisting Town of Allenstown
(Concord, N.H.) New Hampshire Department of Corrections Commissioner William L. Wrenn announced that six minimum security inmates have been painting the waste water treatment plant in Allenstown. The inmates are housed at the Transitional Work Center on the grounds of the New Hampshire State Prison in Concord.
These crews began the project in August 2010 and are going out five days per week on the organized, supervised work release program.
“This is a good way to provide a service to a local community while at the same time giving the offenders some hands-on work experience so they will be better prepared when they are released from prison,” Commissioner Wrenn said.
The crew has also been assisting the town in other general clean-up work within the community.
