LAPCORR Industries Begins Production

Wednesday, December 26, 2007

The Lafayette Parish Correctional Center is taking on a new endeavor. On December 26, 2007, LAPCORR Industries was fully operational producing trash bags for sale to government agencies and nonprofits.

LAPCORR Industries is comprised of LPCC staff and inmates. LPSO is the only sheriff's office in the country to produce can liners for sale using inmate labor. The industries' purpose is more than producing a quality product for the community. Through this program inmate idleness is reduced and profits are used to offset the cost of incarceration thereby reducing cost to taxpayers. Additionally, inmate workers are able to gain a sense of self-worth, develop work ethics, and earn funds for post-release.

Currently LAPCORR Industries has numerous clients purchasing trash bags. The can liners range from 10-60 gallon capacity. Also available is a biodegradable can liner.

LAPCORR is located at 110 Grissom Drive. For a price sheet please call 236-5856.
