For several years, Michigan prisons have been mismanaged by the Department of Corrections administration, resulting in dangerous working conditions for Corrections Officers that the MDOC is unwilling or unable to correct.
Michigan Corrections Organization is working to educate the public and legislators on the working conditions inside state prisons. As part of this campaign, we are hosting a series of informational pickets near prisons around Michigan. Detroit, Jackson, and Marquette are next.
The unsafe staffing levels and dangerous conditions inside Michigan prisons must be addressed immediately. Concerned citizens and family members are encouraged to join current Corrections Officers in these informational pickets.
