Fort Totten Corrections Department

The FTCD has a program where prisoners are allowed to work outside for the reservation and have each day of work count as days of a served sentence. I made friends with Andrew, the head of the Fish and Wildlife Department of the reservation and he was having some of the men perform community service by helping build a ramp and mow the local park. Hopefully later next week I will be able to meet up with him again as he has some of the incarcerated pick up rubbish on the sides of the roads. All of the men working were very nice and polite. It was hard to believe that later that day they would be bussed back to the prison.
