The Fulton County Sheriff’s Office makes a number of programs available to inmates. The Culinary Arts Program allows inmates to obtain certification to get a job working in a kitchen. Students learn the basics of food preparation, safety guidelines, and meal planning. Other programs teach literacy with an ultimate goal of enabling inmates to earn a GED. Another program pairs inmates with rescued shelter dogs. Inmates have the opportunity to train and bond with their assigned dog with the goal of preparing the dog to pass an obedience test and find a permanent home.
