Drug Busts Keep Our Prisons Safe
You may wonder, "Who would try and bring drugs into a
prison?" Sounds dumb right? We think so too. But weekly someone tries to
pull a fast one on our officers at one of our 11 facilities.
A visitor is led out in handcuffs after trying to smuggle in drugs.
We are constantly
working to stay one step ahead, and do a great job! We also work with our
partners in law enforcement to criminally charge smugglers and drug dealers
back out in our communities who supplied the contraband.
Check out some of the stuff officers have seized recently!
