“I hope this is the first in several steps aimed at making SCI Somerset, and all of our correctional facilities, a safe place for our corrections officers to work.
I am hopeful with new leadership taking a fresh look at the policies and procedures in place that our corrections officers can be given the tools necessary to do their job in a safe and effective manner.
This cannot be just a cosmetic change but part of a systemic change in how we manage our corrections institutions.
I encourage the new Superintendents to listen to those in harms way and take their feedback and suggestions seriously.“
-Senator Pat Stefano
