Additional Contact Information

The Prison Industries Enhancement (PIE) office is responsible for introducing private industry jobs and expertise into the prison system to train and employ inmates. As a result, inmates become tax payers, contribute to the cost of their incarceration, pay crimes compensation, pay family support, develop savings for post release, learn employability and job skills, and improve prospects for free world employment.

Accomplishments in 1997-98

  • A number of business proposals are being reviewed which have the potential to provide 380 inmate jobs.
  • The PIE office is working with Project Re-Connect under the Office of Education and Job Training to find jobs for recently released inmates. About 90 potential free world jobs have been identified so far.
