Prison System to Temporarily Consolidate Under-Populated Inmate Housing Units, Providing Taxpayer Savings With No Job Losses or Transfers

The New York State Department of Correctional Services (DOCS) plans to temporarily consolidate 22 under-populated inmate housing units at 17 prisons in response to the State’s continuing inmate population decline.

The move, scheduled to be implemented over the next couple of weeks, will achieve additional savings for State taxpayers by allowing DOCS to leave the 22 housing units unstaffed and empty. Inmates from the vacated units will be transferred to vacant beds in other, staffed housing units. No beds will be added. Correction Officers assigned to the vacated units will be reassigned to vacant posts elsewhere in their current facility. Continue reading “NYS Department of Corrections”
