Stafford Creek no longer under lockdown
Stafford Creek Corrections Center is off lockdown and returning to normal operations.
Visitation resumes today; volunteer programs resume Saturday, March 1.
An investigation continues into four separate, multi-inmate fights that broke out last week when one inmate was injured. Prison administrators placed all medium and minimum-security units at the prison under lockdown. No staff members were hurt.
The inmate was being treated at the hospital with were called not life-threatening injuries.
The first fight occurred in the day room of a medium-custody unit. A short time later, three other multi-inmate fights occurred; one in the same medium-security unit, one in another medium-security unit; and one in minimum-security.
A total number of inmates involved is not known.
