Maryland’s Department of Public Safety & Correctional Services gives offenders an opportunity to learn technical and social skills through employment of Maryland Correctional Enterprises (MCE), which helps inmates become more employable upon release. Maryland Correctional Enterprises, in turn, offers products and services to state and local governments and non-profit organizations at competitive rates.
MCE is a self-sufficient state agency. From MCE’s website:
In order to maintain our self-supporting status and increase the amount of training offered to our offender population, MCE is dedicated to manufacturing superior products at affordable prices along with providing a positive direct economic impact to the State of Maryland.
MCE offers products and services, such as:
- license plates
- signage to food products
- furniture restoration
- data entry
- office planning/design
