DOC Working To Reduce Work Program Escapes

The Louisiana Department of Corrections says it is working to roll back the frequency of inmates taking off from Transitional Work Program sites.

About three thousand inmates are involved in the work release program that allows them to gain job skills prior to their release. But, some are just walking off, and the DOC is looking to deter that.

Electronic monitors is one option being studied, as is more frequent visits to the work sites by officers.
