Atlanta Department of Corrections launches clean-up campaign

Atlanta Department of Corrections has launched a new project called Love Our City. It’s a community improvement campaign aimed at beautifying the city while allowing inmates to perform community service.

The department will accept requests for trash, debris and graffiti clean-up and removal through Feb. 14. Beautification projects will begin Feb. 15 and continue until all requests have been fulfilled. The work will be completed by inmates in the Inmate Work Detail Program at the Atlanta City Detention Center.

Requests will be reviewed and scheduled by the Atlanta Department of Corrections.

The DOC allows inmates from the Atlanta City Detention Center to earn credit on their sentences by participating in the Inmate Work Detail Program. Inmates who participate in the program are non-violent, minimum security inmates charged with misdemeanor offenses.
