The creation of a Prison Industries program was legislated in 1999 by the passage of WS 25-13-101
Members of the Correctional Industries Advisory Board were appointed by the governor and the board held its first meeting in Riverton June 2000.
In their order of business board members determined these priorities: 1) to hire an industries director, and 2) to pursue PIECP – Prison Industries Enhancement Certification Program
As of September 1, 2001 the Standard PIECP (Prison Industries Enhancement Certification Program) Certificate is effective. This makes Wyoming only the 37th state to achieve PIECP certification. Prison Industries brochure (.PDF format).
