With much of New Mexico facing heavy rains and flooding conditions, the New Mexico Corrections Department put inmates to work to protect the community.

Inmates from the Southern New Mexico Correctional Facility filled more than 4,000 sandbags for Las Cruces the past three days.

Officials said to give back to the community is essential to rehabilitation and helps the hearts of the inmates understand the value of a life larger than themselves.
