Funding for jail program cut
Stacia Willson: KENS 5 Eyewitness News
Many inmates struggle to change on their own, which is why these rehabilitation programs are so important. Authorities say in many cases, it's the only thing that will stop a criminal from committing more crimes.
Peace Initiative is the only one of its kind in the country, and the inmates paid for it themselves by buying personal items at the jail.
The county also cut out several other jail programs, including one that teaches inmates trade skills for the workplace.
