MDOC - Flowood Community Work Centers (CWC) - Restitution Center
Community work centers are an alternative facility for inmates to finish serving their sentences. At a community work center, inmates routinely perform work for cities, counties, state agencies and charitable organizations as defined by 501(c)3, and are a valuable source of free labor. Examples of work performed include janitorial work, mechanic work and beautification of roadsides. It is common to see MDOC inmates picking up trash on the highways of Mississippi or at city and state parks. MDOC currently has 9 community work centers statewide and each houses around 100 inmates. The community work center in Flowood houses all female inmates, which is about 100 inmates. Inmates are drug tested often and failing a drug test is automatic return to an institution.
