This is really sad, i read this then down the page you read about a man bringing a gun in there and no charges. I have a friend that works there, you could not imagin the hell that the staff puts on to even there employees. Westville is ran worse then a dollar store. My friend has been through 5 years of disresped, harrassment, and to be blunt just flat out lies, none of which came from the inmates, no all the staff. A warning to anyone working there, or anyone who may ever work there, keep a close eye and keep all paperwork, My friend is now looking for another job, and we found out yesterday they have been lieing about his hire date. We were may aware they have been telling all other employers that he has only been working there for a year, we have the proof, in paystubs and in 4 years of tax forms...You think a state facility would not be filled with such ignorant people.

In my opinion, Trafficking is a major problem at Westville and it's the higher up staff that have the system setup. I suspect some of the Capts, Lts, Sgts, are aligned with gangs. The low level officers, food service workers, and medical staff that are getting nabbed are hapless stooges used as diversions to keep the eyes off the tons of tobacco, drugs, cell phones, and weapons entering the prison.
I was a correctional officer for 8 months. Also, in my opinion, I too was lied too about having my permanent status. I was intentionally setup to make it look like I was doing bad things. There were repeated intense shakedowns of my personal property at main gate. When I refused to speak to Internal Affairs and asked for a lawyer to present they marched me out the front door, banned me from the facility, and put my picture up like I was a criminal.
I'm fighting back, they don't know who they just messed with, my first lawsuit has been filed in LaPorte County Superior Court. Google "Nathan Smith v Westville Correctional" for the documents. Possibly more state and federal actions are coming their way, I have more tricks up my sleeve. Justice WILL come. The lies, harassment, and gestapo tactics will be coming to an end.
