A program that uses offenders sentenced to manual labor helped cleanup a dozen abandoned homes Thursday morning in Dolton, Illinois. The Cook County Sheriff's Office reports approximately 20 offenders with the Sheriff's Work Alternative Program, or SWAP, picked up garbage, whacked weeds and mowed grass, transforming the lawns in front of homes located on East 140th Place, East 141st Place and East 142nd Place. The SWAP crews provide municipalities, government agencies and nonprofit organizations with free labor, and runs seven-days a week.
