Media Tours of Prisons Won't Allow Photos or Videos

No Camera or Video Equipment is Prohibited

After months of blocking media access, the Quinn administration now says it will allow reporters to tour Illinois prisons for a first-hand look at conditions inside.


But it may still be difficult for the public to get a complete picture.


The state Department of Corrections says it will not allow video or audio recording or photographs during those reporter visits.


A number of media organizations have been requesting the opportunity to observe the effects of overcrowding on the state’s prisons.
