Not a chain gang, but prisoners in the county I work for are regularly used for maintenance tasks around county buildings. Raking leaves and other outside maintenance.

They are not supervised by officers and are directed by people in our building and grounds department. I suspect they are non-violent offenders doing a short stint for DUI or whatever.

Maybe it's part of the sentence. Community service. I don't know.
