    Come and learn more about the benefits and incentives of hiring a justice involved individual and becoming a part of the solution to keeping our communities safe by offering employment opportunities that will sustain them in a more productive life. As a Division of the Washington State Department of Corrections, Correctional Industries (CI) provides work training opportunities to individuals that are justice involved.  The goals are to prepare them for successful post-release employment through on-the-job and essential skills training; and to foster community partnerships ad relationships with employers.

    Wendy Martindale

    I was told early in my career that “If you love your job, you will never have to work a day in your life.” 

    Prior to accepting my current position as a Community Employment Specialist for King County in January 2016 at Correctional Industries, I worked for Goodwill Industries in Tacoma for 26 years and had a great career with them.  I ultimately ended up as the Workforce Development Manager, overseeing several programs that provided job placement and retention services to individuals with disabilities and disadvantages.
