MI A/G Wants Improved Prison Security

Posted Monday, July 21st 2014 @ 4pm  by WOOD RADIO news team

Michigan's attorney general is recommending numerous changes in prison security after a convicted quadruple murderer escaped earlier this year.

Bill Schuette's independent investigation into the February escape from the Ionia Correctional Facility flagged problems with video surveillance, fence alarms, prisoner counts and other issues.

The report also says the Michigan Corrections Department should consider whether to re-station armed guards in towers and make perimeter patrol a full-time job again.
