MDOC to Close Four Community Work Centers

Posted: Updated:

The Mississippi Department of Corrections is planning to close four of its seventeen community work centers.

It's effective July 15, 2013.

The reasons for the decision include a budget shortfall and fewer non-violent inmates eligible to be housed at community work centers.

MDOC's goal is to provide the greatest amount of public protection while making the most efficient use of the state's resources.

MDOC will close community work centers in the following locations:  Rosedale, Yazoo City, Fayette, and Lucedale.
