Whether motivated by a desire to help or to get a break from jail, their efforts — along with countless others — were appreciated by area officials and residents.

The group of five inmates had recently completed a training course while behind bars that allowed them to operate heavy machinery needed in the cleanup.

“Clearing the way,” a tweet from the Walton County Sheriff’s Office declared. “Detention Deputies & Inmates from the Walton County Jail are cleaning up debris in the Valley following Hurricane Michael.”
