Local Jail Using Station’s Reports About Heroin to Educate Inmates

By Kevin Eck 

The Pendleton Correctional Facility in the Indianapolis market will start airing a series of special reports local CW affiliate WISH did called Heroin at Home: Heartache and Hope.

The station says the series focused on the heroin problem in central Indiana and “offered solutions for those in need of help.”

Jail officials hope the programs will be eye-opening for inmates.

Officials say many offenders enter the facility unaware of the damage drug abuse can cause.
