Members, families enjoyed annual picnic

The heat didn’t stop hundreds of corrections officers and their families from coming to the MCO Children’s Day Picnic Saturday in Belleville.
They enjoyed free food, outdoor laser tag, train rides, a photo booth, volleyball, horse shoes and more. Three hundred kids got a backpack full of school supplies.
The annual picnic is sponsored by MCO and employee clubs at facilities in the southeast region.

Sault Ste. Marie picket a success

About 85 people stopped by a picket Wednesday in Sault Ste. Marie to raise awareness of prison staffing cuts.

MCO chapter leaders at Chippewa Correctional Facility organized the event. At Chippewa, only one gun tower remains operational, and only for eight hours a day.

Perimeter Security Vehicles have been eliminated. MCO believes these cuts endanger prisons and communities.

Many of the participants at Wednesday’s picket were Chippewa and Kinross corrections officers concerned for their safety. They waived signs with messages including, “perimeter security =

public safety” and “honk for safe prisons.”
