Deconstruction as Inmate Training
  • Opportunities
  • Green aspect of deconstruction provides added
    training opportunities for offenders to apply to
    current job market

    contractor would work directly with inmates to
    give them hands on experience

  • Lead paint abatement
  • Soft skills (working with supervisor, etc.)
  • Equipment operation
  • Saves taxpayer dollars through recycling of
    materials and use of inmate labor
