Bike repair inmate program

The Sheriff’s Office is teaching jail inmates to repair bicycles as part of a new inmate program. Graduates of the program get a certificate to say they have been trained in basic bike repair techniques. They work on unclaimed bikes from the Sheriff’s Office Property Division. Some of the bikes are then donated to charities, and others are used by participants in the jail work release program for transportation to and from their jobs. In the picture, Sgt. Andrew Paskiewicz helps inmate Andrew Richardson repair a bike he will then personally use to commute to his job in the work release program.
