AUTHORITY: Sheriff Noah Robinson
Five Vanderburgh County Jail inmates recently graduated from Aramark’s IN2WORK Culinary program.
On Thursday June 08, 2023 a ceremony was held with the participating inmates, their families, and representatives from Aramark and the Sheriff’s Office. The participants prepared a meal for their families and spoke about their plans for life post-incarceration.
The IN2WORK program establishes a path to success for offenders by providing training and resources to empower individuals to attain future employment in the food industry.
Sheriff Noah Robinson explained, “Recidivism reduction programs like this provide individuals with a clear opportunity to break the cycle of criminal behavior.” Sheriff Robinson continued, “The feeling of achievement that comes from completing the course may just be the catalyst needed for an inmate to take a better path upon release.”
The Sheriff’s Office has had a longstanding partnership with Aramark Corporation, which has provided food service to the Jail since the year 1977.
Later this year the Sheriff’s Office will unveil new recidivism reduction programs.
