Wednesday, October 22, 2008

Since its opening on January 1st of this year, LAPCORR INDUSTRIES proudly announces that on October 22, 2008 it has crossed the $100,000 sales mark. LAPCORR simulates a real-world work environment where offenders are trained in quality, safety, productivity and good work ethics. Sgt. Canezaro—LAPCORR Manager—states “this benchmark proves that a Sheriff's Office can successfully operate an industry program and I am looking forward to further expansion of the program."

LAPCORR, which aims to successfully reintegrate inmates into society, began with startup funding provided by the Inmate Welfare Fund. One goal is to become a self supporting program for the Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office. For more information on LAPCORR visit
