I heard they can't keep employees there
because the inmates run the show and abuse
the staff. Nobody is there to protect them,
and they quit.

I agree! Also, the ones that stay and are dependable catch the backlash of bad management & work horribly LONG hours.....never know when they go in when they will make it out of that place. They take advantage of their dedicated employees and that IS an understatement! I heard that there was a HUGE fight at Telfair State Prison & it has overflowed into Hays......I saw it on the news coming out of Albany.

Report: Cut prison time for nonviolent offenders

A panel created to overhaul Georgia's clogged corrections system released a series of ambitious recommendations on Friday, including one suggesting that prison terms for some nonviolent offenses be reduced and more alternative sentencing programs be established for low-level criminals.

Some 60% of inmates are drug and property offenders, and many of them are low-risk criminals. In 2010, for instance, 25% of all new inmates had never before been incarcerated but were sent to prison for committing these types of non-violent crimes.

Anyone not believe it? Just get a scanner and program 153.740 into it and find somewhere near and listen to the radios. When they are on lock down they are always coming out on their own,when they get ready.Is it safe for the guards or the neighborhood? What happened to the "medium" security prison the community was promised. Its now a near maximum but with worn out locks.

Great. The only problem with your comment is that it doesn't really apply to Hays which is full of violent gang members and people with life and life with no parole. And what does it have to do with it being under staffed. And what does it have to do with them having illegal cell phones in the hands of gang members who can call and text a hit anywhere in the state? And the worn out non functioning locks? And sharp homemade weapons?

It has everything to do with Hays and every other state prison in Georgia. 60% are there for nonviolent drug and property crimes. Stop locking so many people up and there will be more money to deal with the violent ones, including more staff per inmate, new locks, safeguards against homemade weapons and the 30% recidivism rate.

Your bit about "a hit anywhere in the state" is just sensational bs.

The correctional officers are underpaid, haven't had a raise in 5 years. Their insurance went up 17 percent this year ! Meanwhile the government pays for cell phones for people on foodstamps. We have to struggle to pay for our own food and cell phones. This is messed up. The most pressing issue now is the fact that the cell doors won't lock. The prisoners come out of their cell whenever they get ready. The inmates will one day overrun Hays State Prison. They already know they can .They do have cell phones, shanks and they break parts off their bunks to use as weapons.The State of Georgia has a moral obligation to protect their employees and they are not doing it.They could cut spending somewhere else and fix these prisons and make them safe. They could attract better help if they would pay the correctional officers better.A strong man with a clean criminal background and enough sense to go thru the training to become a correctional officer deserves to be paid GOOD ! They will never be able to get or keep good help treating them the way they do now.

You apparently need to be educated and go to work there. YES......they CAN use the phones to TEXT A HIT ANYWHERE in the state and they HAVE DONE SO. So, I suggest that you go apply for a CO position, get hired on and talk to us after about 6 months on the job.

I know someone who works there and it's true about the locks. THEY DON'T WORK! Why the hell is it called prison when they can get out?! Its mostly young gang members there that are in there for life already. What do they have to loose if they kill somebody? Most of the co's are young and scared so yes, the inmates run that place. It's very scary. The feds need to step in b/c obviously the state doesn't know how to run a prison and they don't care about the employees there.

Why don't the COs just quit? That is what everyone is saying the people that don't want to work under the new moral code at Shorter should do.

People could quit but unfortunately their bills wont quit coming to their mailbox. There are not that many jobs around here and with fuel prices so high who can drive far away.

To the best of my knowledge it is not contracted out, the department has in house maintenance. The problems is they cant fix problems if no money/parts are provided by the state to do the work.

Maybe, if everything people are posting here is true. Is it wise to post frequency numbers, and information about broken locks on a public web sight for all to see? Why give the cons, and their family/friends that type of info? If your worried about someone’s safety. The community’s safety. This type of info should be dealt with some other way. A way the cons can’t get a hold of, ya think? Just my opinion.

According to AM1180, Hayes is on lockdown,
as of sometime yesterday, due to inmate
fights.
