Grady County Sheriff Harry Young says costs can soar for both building materials and labor costs.

Now, he's using a willing work crew to save big.

Says Sheriff Young, "It gets very expensive. We've got inmates that are volunteers that come out and help ... save the county at least $100,000 just on things that we've maintained."

Young says inmate crews clean the sheriff's office daily.

He says they also pick up trash on the road as well as repair and paint county buildings.
