Another interesting stop is the inmate work program. This branch of the site illustrates the many and varied work programs performed by our inmates which is a benefit to county taxpayers while helping to develop vocational skills and responsibility for preparation back to the community.

Inmate Work Program - One of the primary goals of our department is the continued use and further development of Inmate Work Crews and assignments both on and off department grounds. Such work, coupled with vocational rehabilitation, moral intervention, and education are all integral parts of the entire rehabilitative effort. Our inmates also perform various community-based projects. Everything from roadway clean up and work in local parks, to assisting the Salvation Army in preparing packages of food for the needy during the Christmas season. This benefits Onondaga County taxpayers by providing labor for various tasks resulting in significant savings. These crews are carefully selected and constantly supervised by our security staff. They have proven to be an asset to our community. The following is a sampling of the different work activities which takes place on a daily basis at our facility.

Laundry Operation- The laundry crew is one of the busiest areas of our facility. From early in the morning and all day long these inmates keep busy laundering items for our facility as well as the Hillbrook Detention Facility. Hundreds of items each day have to be sorted, washed, dried and packed for delivery.

Consolidated Food Service – In 1995 the department consolidated its foodservice operation with the Onondaga County Sheriff’s Department. Over 3,100 inmate meals are prepared and served each day to both jails. The kitchen in the Sheriff’s jail is the primary location for preparation of all meals. Food is then transported to our facility each day.

Maintenance of Buildings & Grounds – An outside inmate work crew supervised by correction officers assigned to the Maintenance Division, maintain all grounds throughout the year. Everything from lawn mowing to shoveling snow is done by this crew. These supervised work crews also remove the trash generated by our facility, unload deliveries to our warehouse, deliver supplies to the facility and paint building facilities.

Parks Crews – Nearly 10 months of the year, an inmate work crew assists the Onondaga County Parks Department in the maintenance of county parks and the “Lights on the Lake” project. Each holiday season since it’s inception, our inmates have played a large part in setting up and taking down the extensive “Lights on the Lake” holiday lighting display at Onondaga Lake.
