LPSO Gives Away Inmate Produced Pet Beds Made of Recycled Uniforms
Wednesday, September 26, 2012
Eighty two pet beds were given away this past weekend at the Strut Your Mutt Walk, held Saturday. The pet beds are produced by Inmate workers at the LPSO‘s LAPCORR Industries. The beds are made from worn/unusable inmate uniforms that are salvaged and sewn together to create the pet beds. The beds are part of the “go green” initiative as the old uniforms previously would have been discarded. The beds are available to local not for profit animal shelters. Requests for the beds can be made by calling LAPCORR Industries at 236-5856.
The Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA), American Correctional Association (ACA) and NCCHC (National Commission on Correctional Health Care) for the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center.
