Prison System Lifts Lockdown

The Department of Corrections canceled weekend visitation and put every facility in the state on lockdown after they got word that inmates were planning major disturbances in several intuitions. 

Corrections Secretary Julie Jones says she made a strategic decision to take proactive action to keep staff and inmates safe. 

In a written statement released by her press office, Jones says she is confident the measures taken were not only necessary but effective. 

Without further comment, the lockdown appears to have been lifted.
