Public Meeting to Discuss Prison Security Scheduled

Meeting Agenda

A public meeting to discuss safety and security issues at SCI-Dallas will be held on April 8th at 6:30 p.m. at the Jackson Township Volunteer Fire Department, 1160 Chase Road, Shavertown. Representatives from the Department of Corrections will share the details of a recently announced plan to reduce tower staffing at the prison.

Senator Baker anticipates a strong turnout of area residents and local officials. “It is imperative for state officials to listen to the deep concerns people have. Many believe the plan to be a mistake that will have safety consequences,” she said.

“People remember it did not work out the last time tower staffing was eliminated,” said Jackson Township Supervisor Jay Wilkes. “We just want to ensure the safety of our residents.”
