The Fayette county jail is committed to helping the community by detaining those who have committed or are being accused of criminal acts. Through the Fayette county jail, programs are being created and organized, in order to serve the greater community. Furthermore, these service projects are being carried through with the help of inmates of the jail.
The basis of the Fayette county jail community service program is to have the inmates participate in manual labor scenarios, in order to fix vandalized pieces of the town, and to give back to the community. One of the largest community service endeavors taken on the inmates of the Fayette county jail was a cleanup program in which inmates cleaned public buildings, schools, walls, churches, and every other location that could be found to have graffiti on it. Once this job was done, it was estimated that the inmates cleaned off over 4,000 tags of graffiti.
