Friday was graduation day for inmates taking part in a new work program at the Tulsa County jail.

It's called In2Work. It teaches basic food service skills. Ten inmates began in the program, but just four graduated.

It's a rigorous program that, hopefully, will help the inmates find work once they're released.

"We do more than just lock them up. We offer a variety of programs and different avenues to learn things they don't know to make themselves better than when they first got here, in hopes that they don't come back," said Chief Deputy Michelle Robinette, with the Tulsa County Sheriff's Office.

The jail teamed up with food service company "Aramark" to offer the two-month program.
