Inmates learn on-the-job skills in Cambridge

CAMBRIDGE — On Friday, city and state officials gathered in Cambridge to mark the near completion of a unique opportunity for rehabilitation for some Maryland state prison system inmates.

The city of Cambridge and the Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services recently teamed up for a first-of-its-kind inmate work program.

The nearly finished project used prisoners to install sidewalks along Cedar Street in the city of Cambridge. The project cost $370,000, much cheaper than using conventional contractors.

The inmates were brought to Cambridge from the Eastern Correctional Institution.
