Ever since the Madison County Sheriff’s Office moved into its new location in 2017, inmates from the Northwest Correctional Complex in Tiptonville have been using the building as a training ground for the prison’s carpentry program, The Jackson Sun reports. Inmates have laid the carpeting and flooring, framed new walls, hung Sheetrock, finished drywall and more. Inmates can earn certifications in core carpentry skills and carpentry levels one and two in about two years through the Tennessee Department of Corrections-funded program.
