Door County jail sees Huber and technical training program successes

Inmates at the Door County Jail are continuing to make a living while serving their sentences or learning vocational skills to set a new course for their lives.  The Huber work-release program allows qualifying residents to continue their pre-sentence employment during the day and return to jail in the evening.  Door County Sheriff Tammy Sternard says the program also opens opportunities for jobless inmates.



Sheriff Sternard adds the jail has an ongoing relationship with Northeast Wisconsin Technical College to provide interested inmates training for in-demand work skills.

Sternard says both programs have helped inmate set goals for themselves after they've been released.
