Cullman County Sheriff Matt Gentry recently received the 2019 PALS Governor’s Award for helping reduce litter on the roads in Cullman County.
Deputies and inmates have removed more than 48,275 lbs. of trash from 217 miles of roads of Cullman County. CCSO also picked up 3,209 pounds of scrap and cans from Cullman County Roadways which resulted in $533.97 being donated to Cullman Caring for Kids.
“This is truly a team award for all the deputies and personnel who worked hard to clean up our county. I really believe it’s better to have these non violent inmates cleaning our roads than just sitting in jail” said Gentry.
