Jail Inmates Pick Up Trash Along Highway 5

“Opportunity” may not seem like the appropriate word to associate with picking up trash along the highway, but for non-violent inmates of the Douglas County Jail it’s a chance to get outside, enjoy some fresh air and do something meaningful in the community. The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office has adopted a one-mile stretch of road along Highway 5 through MoDOT’s Adopt-A-Highway program for litter cleanup.
