Inmates at the Daviess County Detention Center are acquiring new skills as they prepare to re-enter the workforce.
The Reentry Success Program is designed to provide a pathway to gaining employment in manufacturing and/or skilled trades. Inmates obtain their Enhanced Operator I and Workforce Readiness Certificate through the online FlexTrain platform at Owensboro Community & Technical College.
It’s a collaborative effort supported by the Greater Owensboro Economic Development Corporation, Daviess County Fiscal Court, and the City of Owensboro. Jailer Art Maglinger says five more graduates have completed the program, with another five preparing to start the online training courses.
