Community Corrections Crews Clean Up Clarksburg

Community Corrections crews are made up of men and women who are ordered by the court to give back to their community. A lot of times, this is an alternative sentence instead of prison for non-violent offenders.
"They want to be able to work. They want to be able to do things the right way. This program gives them strategies and tools for them to make good decisions so they can remain drug and crime free," said Harrison County Day Report Center Manager Steve Santilli.
The crews work in Harrison County throughout the year.
"They are providing free labor. So we're able to help not-for-profits, we're able to help service organizations like the Lions Club, we're also able to help municipalities throughout the county, provide free labor to them, which will help them lower their costs," said Santilli.
Some things they've done include painting the 911 center and schools, cleaning and helping recycle throughout the county. On Friday, crews cleaned the Adamston Lion's Club 'Welcome to Clarksburg' sign. The Lions Club had repainted this sign back in 1999 but since it's been covered with dirt and grime.
"We went to Community Corrections because as we get older in our Lions Club, the members don't have the physical energy so to go to Community Corrections to get the manpower to scrub this wall, it's greatly appreciated and we thought it might be a good project they'd be interested in," said Adamston Lions Club member Paul Hamrick.
The Lions Club was thrilled with their work and is looking forward to using them again.
"The wheels are already turning. I'm thinking of other projects, yes," said Hamrick.
If you have any projects that you think would qualify for this type of community service, call Santilli at 304-626-1094.
