Imperial County Sheriff's Office Establishes First Female Offender Work Crew

Imperial, California - Sheriff Raymond Loera and Director of Public Works Mr. William Brunet have partnered for roadside cleanup since 2013. To date, the roadside crews have been made up of male offenders. As part of the Sheriff’s Office commitment to providing equal access to the female offenders, they began their first all-female work crew last week.

Although there are fewer workers on this crew, they are still committed to helping remove litter in the community. Since the inception of the partnership, the roadside work crews have logged over 4,800 work hours, removed 1,924 bags of trash, each weighing approximately 50 pounds, and walked over 396 miles.
