Inmate Transfers From Tamms On Hold


Transfers of inmates out of the Tamms Correctional Center are on hold until at least next week.

 

AFSCME went to court this week seeking an injunction to halt the transfers. Lawyers for the state want their lawsuit thrown out of court… but agreed to temporarily stop moving inmates in order to give the union time to respond to the state’s motion to dismiss.

 

The union claims that transferring dangerous inmates from the Tamms supermax facility to other prisons will increase overcrowding and put inmates and prison workers in danger.
