Prison sales get reprieve
#1 Apr 27, 2011
Close down Angola and reopen the two closed facilities. Have DOC take over the facilities in Allen and Winn Parishes and expand them as originally planned. That will fix the prison issues.

If it ain't broke don't fix it. It seems to be working in Winn and Allen parish.-----I DON'T work for the prison system.

The prisons in Winn and Allen Parishes have the highest turnover rates for security personnel. The primary reasons are salery and benifits. You get what you pay for and they don't pay very well. I worked for DOC 20 years and am now retired.

The last thing this state needs to do is close Angola and distribute all those inmates across the state. Angola is where it is and what it is for a reason: to hold the worst of the worst.
The first thing we need to do is get out of the business of being No. 1 in incarceration. The public demands we lock up everyone in order to make them (the public) feel better.
I hate to admit it but you will probably agree with me on this and I doubt you and I agree on much based on many of your posts, but the state needs to hire more probation/parole officers, pay them better, lessen their case loads, and actually allow them to do what a probation/parole officer does: supervise and aid in the rehabilitation of inmates.
The problem is that our politicians are afraid to admit that locking everyone up ain't the answer. If we spent more on education and less on lock ups we would be way ahead.
