State moves inmates at West Carroll Detention Center

Last Modified: Friday, December 21, 2012 11:24 AM

OAK GROVE (AP) — Concerns over inadequate staffing on the night shift at West Carroll Detention Center have forced Department of Corrections officials to move about 350 DOC prisoners to state and other parish facilities across Louisiana over the next couple of days.

DOC communications director Pam LaBorde told News-Star the department is concerned about the future of the facility.

West Carroll Parish Sheriff Jerry Philley says DOC officials were at the prison Thursday.

The facility is owned by Emerald Cos.

Once at the assigned locations, LaBorde said offenders will be allowed a phone call to notify family members of their new housing assignment.

LaBorde said 15 DOC offenders will remain at West Carroll temporarily to assist with the operations of the facility since it will still house pre-trial inmates.
