Small tool repair shop - Page 3

The idea for the repair shop came from a Department of Transportation employee who asked the prison system if inmates could repair small tools used in highway maintenance. Prison managers found a home for the program at the Yanceyville medium security prison and worked with Piedmont Community College to put the program in place. The prison supplied the shop, supervision and workers, community colleges provided the training and DOT has supplied most of the tools in need of repair.
