Leon County inmates have logged more than 161,000 man hours so far this year, saving the county an estimated $2 million.

They've been put to work cleaning roadways and holding ponds, paving roads and maintaining city and county facilities.

Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell started the Work Camp Program in 1997 as an alternative to jail time.

He's currently working with the county to expand the program in hopes of alleviating overcrowding at the county jail.
