WCTV's Art Myers Goes Behind Bars at Jefferson CI to "Do Your Job!"

What better way to let the people who we serve and protect know what it’s like to work in a prison, than to send a reporter in to see for himself—and that’s exactly what happened this week at Jefferson CI.

Corrections Officer Sergeant Gary Williams invited TV Reporter Art Myers to see for himself what prison work and prison life is all about. It was a real, and positive, eye-opener for the reporter.

“It was a beautiful day to go to prison,” Myers told his WCTV audience. “As we pulled up at the Jefferson Correctional Institution we had no idea we were about to find something rare growing here in the Florida sunshine. Hope.”
