Three other inmates graduated from the Jail Chemical Addiction Program (JCAP) being offered at the Scott County Jail.
They are pictured below from left to right, Gabrielle Little, Felicia King, Sheriff Goodin and Autumn Campbell.
These three ladies completed a six-week addiction course in the jail paid for by the State Attorney General’s Office.
Sheriff Goodin stated, “not only are we arresting people, but we are also giving them the opportunity to succeed in life once they exit the jail”. Since Sheriff Goodin took office the Scott County Jail has been providing education and job training to inmates while they are incarcerated. These programs are being paid for by grants and other non-taxpayer funding.
Sheriff Goodin also stated, “he was extremely proud of the inmates taking advantage of the offered programs to change their lives”.
