BAKERSFIELD - The Kern County Sheriff's Office held its first annual re-entry fair at Lerdo Jail Friday morning.
The purpose of the fair was to provide information and resources on rehabilitative programs and re-entry services after the men and women get released from jail.
Service organizations in attendance included Child Support Services, Department of Human Services, Kern County Probation, West Care, KMC ACA Enrollment and more. Many of these services are free.
Inmates were allowed to attend If they have a year or less left in Lerdo.
Hundreds of inmates attended in hopes of finding a bright future after release and to regain their position in society.
The KCSO says the event was a success and they plan to put these re-entry fairs on twice a year.
