Mississippi Prison Industries provides realistic work experiences for sentenced, adult offenders residing within Mississippi correctional facilities. This work program gives offender workers opportunities to obtain valuable skills that will lead to long term sustainability. Within our program, offenders learn trades that gives them marketable skills upon their release. While in prison, we train offenders to work in quality production processes, industry techniques unique to their work training, warehouse and logistics training, and customer service skills. Additionally, by developing communication skills, the workers learn how to respond to supervision and how to interact within the work environment. The ultimate goal of MPIC is to have a credible impact on reducing the recidivism rate of the work program participants. The State of Mississippi, local communities, and the families involved all benefit from MPIC’s success.
