State Prisons Placed On Lockdown

According to the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, all Texas state prisons have been placed on lockdown status as of Wednesday morning due to safety concerns. TDCJ released a statement explaining the decision, citing a rise in illegal narcotics trafficking into the prisons and an increase in inmate-on-inmate homicides. TDCJ is limiting inmate movement and contact with people outside the prison. They are conducting comprehensive searches of visitors entering the prison, and they are utilizing K9s.
