WD Smith Center Community Project

Tuesday, September 2, 2003

This past summer, the Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office partnered with the Lafayette Parish School Board to improve the appearance of the WD Smith Career Center. Inmate workers, supervised by Lafayette Parish Sheriff Deputies, completed over 1700 man-hours pressure washing, scraping, painting, and assisting with various maintenance tasks during the 9-week contract period that ran from the beginning of June through the middle of August.

The Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office works with several community groups throughout the year, providing inmate workers to assist with events such as the annual Foodnet Food for Families Food Drive, Lafayette Junior League's Tinsels and Treasures, the Lafayette Chamber/Lafayette School Board Net Day Project and Litter Abatement throughout the parish.
