Sheriff’s Inmate Community Service Program Spruces Up Millville’s Police Station

Millville – Responding to a request from Police Chief Ronald Landry, Worcester County Sheriff Lewis G.
Evangelidis recently provided free inmate labor through the Sheriff’s Inmate Community Service Program to
the Millville Police Department. The Sheriff’s inmate work crew spent the entire week working at the Millville
police headquarters scraping, priming and applying a fresh coat of exterior paint to the town’s police station
which had not been painted in well over a decade. The project completed by the Sheriff’s Inmate Community
Service Program provides the town’s taxpayers with well over five thousand dollars in savings.
The Sheriff’s inmate work release crews are made up of nonviolent, non-sex offender individuals approaching
the end of their sentence who have earned a place in the Community Service Program. Since taking office last
year, Sheriff Evangelidis has more than tripled the size of the Inmate Community Service Program.
“The Inmate Community Service Program has provided a true win-win for the Town of Millville and for the
Sheriff’s Department. With local communities continuing to struggle during these tough fiscal times, our
inmate work crews are able to complete many worthy projects at town police departments and other non-profit
organizations at little or no cost resulting in a significant savings for taxpayers while inmates who are selected
for the program appreciate the opportunity of a productive days work.” Evangelidis continued “With over 2.5
million dollars in savings for our local communities, the Community Service Program is a great asset and as
Sheriff I will continue to provide this much needed and valuable resource to the cities and towns throughout
Worcester County.”
“I can not thank Sheriff Evangelidis enough for providing the Inmate Community Service Program to the
Millville Police Department for a full week to complete the much needed scraping, priming and exterior
painting of our police station. The Sheriff’s inmate work crew has done a highly professional job, saving our
department well over five thousand dollars in maintenance costs and with zero funds available in our budget for
this project, the WCSO Inmate Community Service Program has provided a great service and substantial cost
savings for our community.” said Millville Chief of Police Ronald Landry.
“It’s always a pleasure to provide the WCSO Inmate Community Service Program to our local police
departments, Chief Landry has been a true partner with the Sheriff’s Department and we look forward to
assisting the Millville Police Department with more projects in the future.” said Worcester County Sheriff Lew
Evangelidis.
