Inmate trustee program


Our inmate trustee program is valuable to the operations at the NCSO in several ways.
The inmates who meet the qualifications and criteria are offered the opportunity to work in exchange for time credit.

This is just another example of how we also try to teach inmates a trade that can be applied and utilized once they are released back into society.

These inmates are seen penning, working and feeding cows today at our county farm.

This is an opportunity for them to gain working experience in ranching. We hope they positively use the experience they received while incarcerated.
