Dwight Prison closing draws near


Logan County – The Dwight Prison is scheduled to close March 31st.


Last week about 150 inmates from Dwight moved to the Logan County Correctional Center. In the next few weeks nearly one thousand inmates will be moved to Logan County.


Last year Governor Patt Quinn ordered the Dwight facility to close, saying it would help better serve female inmates while cutting costs. The Logan County Facility will house two thousand prisoners when the move is complete, meaning it will be near capacity.
