Inmates On Restrictions After Disruption

KSAL StaffFebruary 3, 2014

Maximum-security inmates at a northeast Kansas prison have been placed on restrictions after what officials called a weekend “disruption.”

Kansas Department of Corrections spokesman Jeremy Barclay said Monday that maximum-security inmates at the Lansing Correctional Facility were involved in a disruption in the yard Saturday night. Barclay says he doesn’t know how many inmates were involved, but that no serious injuries were reported.

In response, the warden placed the maximum-security section of the prison on limited movement, which means inmates can’t, for example, go to their prison jobs or to the exercise area. Barclay says prison officials on Monday were reviewing whether to continue the restrictions.

The Lansing prison houses minimum-, medium- and maximum-security inmates. Its current population is 2,407 inmates, two more than its capacity.
