State Corrections Dept. Stands By Eased Security Concerns

The state department of corrections has eased security measures that will be used to manage the violent offenders being transferred from the Tamms supermax prison to the facility at Pontiac.


The new rules reduce the number of officers that must accompany the Tamms inmates, change the restraints used on them, and require Pontiac inmates in segregation to double up in order to accommodate the influx of new prisoners.


Prison officials say there are sufficient safeguards in place to handle the Tamms population.


But workers say the moves will add to the dangers at Pontiac.
