Today, the Sheriff's workforce is comprised of fourteen staff members who supervise up to 40 inmates who volunteer to complete a multitude of different jobs while repaying their debt to society through hard work.

The workforce inmates are transported to approved job assignments by deputies, they are provided a bag lunch on the job site and returned to jail housing after their daily assignment is completed.

Some of the regular duties of the workforce inmates include painting, cleaning offices, recycling paper, preparation and clean up following special city events, trash removal from city streets, mowing, and landscape details on city and state property. They also provide support to any immediate labor needs of the city.
