Former Wardens Warn of Trouble From Overcrowded Prisons


Some former Illinois prison wardens are warning of trouble ahead from the state’s decision to move more dangerous inmates into segregation units at less secure prisons.

 

The move has become necessary because of increased prison overcrowding following the closure of the Tamms supermax prison.

 

But the former wardens say putting higher-security inmates into lower-security prisons… even in secure segregation units… could pose a danger to staffers who are not used to dealing with those more dangerous prisoners.

 

The wardens are also concerned about plans to house some inmates in prison gymnasiums temporarily because of lack of cell space.
