Once a prisoner has done his time, Missouri corrections officials don’t want to see him come back. That’s why Algoa Correctional Center staff have implemented the Save Our Son program…or S.O.S. The program began in St. Louis and Algoa activities director Meryl (MURL) Miller says it seemed to be a natural fit for offenders getting ready to hit the streets again in Missouri.

Miller says there are 12 offenders currently in the program. He says there are currently more than 300 employers who have contacted the Department of Corrections with an interest in having inmates come to work for them when they are released from prison.
