President Obama addressed the NAACP in Philadelphia July 14, 2015 and noted the work of Montgomery County.  Specifically, he said

“Our prisons should be a place where we can train people for skills that can help them find a job, not train them to become more hardened criminals. Look, I don’t want to pretend like this is all easy.  But some places are doing better than others.  Montgomery County, Maryland put a job training center inside the prison walls to give folks a head start in thinking about what might you do otherwise than committing crime.  That’s a good idea."
