Shakedowns of prison staff ordered
SPRINGFIELD – An email from an Illinois Department of Corrections administrator ordered wardens at 10 prisons to conduct “mass shakedowns” of staff as they left work last week, at the same time workers were telling lawmakers about problems at the facilities.
The July 19 memo obtained by The Associated Press is from Ty Bates, the department’s southern region deputy director.
It was sent less than 20 minutes after a hearing started at the state Capitol, where a dozen workers testified about prison overcrowding and understaffing.
