Prisoner Transfers On Hold For Now

Transfers of inmates out of prisons that are slated for closure will remain on hold through the end of the month. The state has agreed to continue its agreement to halt the transfers… while a court case is pending and an arbitrator reviews the situation.


AFSCME had gone to court to block the transfers… saying the move of dangerous inmates out of the Tamms supermax prison to other facilities would increase overcrowding and make those other prisons more dangerous to both inmates and staff. More talks are planned over the next two weeks.
