Since 1973 the Dallas County Sheriff's Department (SD), established a partnership with El Centro College (ECC) to offer classes to inmates at the Dallas County Jails. Throughout the contract years, classes have included a range of study including art, math, office technology, social sciences, developmental studies, keyboarding, computer sciences, and human development. Classes are offered to inmates who voluntarily request to enroll. Approximately 12.5% of the total jail population enroll in ECC's college credit courses.
