Hundreds of Illinois Prisoners Transferred Around State Prisons


About 150 female inmates have been transferred to the Logan Correctional Center in Lincoln… with hundreds more to follow in the weeks ahead.

 

In all, around 950 women will be moved from the Dwight Correctional Center to Logan… which will become a maximum-security facility for female prisoners.

 

As part of the complicated process of closing Dwight, about 1,000 male prisoners from Logan were transferred to the nearby Lincoln Correctional Center… and hundreds more were shipped out to other prisons around the state, where they are being housed in gymnasiums and other temporary space.
