Missouri Governor Makes Moves To Combine Two Missouri Prisons

Missouri Governor Mike Parson is already taking steps to combine two Missouri prisons.

Parson delivered his State of the State address yesterday [Wednesday] afternoon and announced his intention to close Crossroads Correctional Facility in Cameron, and transfer inmates to the nearby Western Missouri Correctional facility. Parson says doing so would allow for pay raises for DOC workers.

The Governor met with leadership from both facilities today to ensure a smooth transition and come up with a consolidation plan.
