Alabama Inmates Go on Strike

SENATEPRISONSAlabama Department of Corrections officials report that some inmates at the William C. Holman Correctional Facility in Atmore, and the Elmore Correctional Facility are refusing to work in their assigned jobs at both facilities.

Inmates at the correctional facilities failed to report to work on Sunday by refusing to help corrections staff in preparing the morning meal. On Monday, inmates continued to disobey orders to report to their assigned jobs.

The inmates have not given any demands, or a reason for refusing to work. As a precaution, the correctional facilities are on lockdown with limited inmate movement while ADOC investigates the situation.

Correctional staff are responding by delivering the basic services to all inmates at both facilities.  The facilities are secure, inmates are receiving their daily meals, and their healthcare needs are being met.

No other correctional facilities are on lockdown.
