The Prisoner Assisted Community Enhancement (PACE) program is helping to make our community a better place.

05/01/2013

Five days a week, twenty inmates, under the direct supervision of two Deputy Sheriff's, head out to various locations in Los Angeles County and work on a variety of community enhancement projects. The projects focus mainly on community beautification, clean-up of community parks, hiking trail restoration and other similar projects. Past project locations have included Vasquez Rocks Natural Area, William S.Hart Regional Park, Jesse Owens Community Regional Park, Whittier Narrows Regional Park, Kenneth Hahn Rec Area and Castaic Lake.



The inmates are fire camp graduates from the Inmate Fire Training Facility who are awaiting their assignment to one of the five Los Angeles County Fire Department inmate fire camps. The inmates are part of the State Realignment Plan (AB109), which places lower security level inmates ("N3"- Nonviolent, Non-serious, Non-sexual) in the custody of local law enforcement agencies. After graduating from the fire camp program, it can take several days before a vacancy is open in one of the five fire camps. While the inmates are waiting for a vacancy, they are provided a voluntary opportunity to go out into the community and assist on the various projects.
