INMATES TO CLEAN INDIGENT CEMETERY ON GRIGGS AVENUE

Inmate laborers from the Doña Ana County Detention Center will be at work Wednesday morning, Aug. 30 to clean weeds and trash from the Doña Ana County Indigent Cemetery on E. Griggs Avenue. The project is scheduled to begin between 9:30 and 10:15 a.m., continuing until the cemetery grounds are fully cleaned.

Detention Center Administrator Chris Barela said the inmate volunteers will be closely supervised and have been classified at trustee status, meaning they pose no risk to the community.
