Wise Works Program Working

The Wise Works Program is working to save the county jail space and costs. Many people that are facing possible jail time in Wise County, Virginia, that are low risk offenders have the opportunity to go to work. Rather than sitting in a jail cell, the Wise Works Program allows them to do community service during the day and go home at night. Currently there are more than thirty people working on completing the program. The program has saved Wise County $312,000 in associated jail costs.
