FEATURED STORY

A helping of great help

By the corrections community

From across the nation, we find examples of corrections professionals giving up their free time or giving a part of themselves so others not so fortunate can benefit. These are their stories.

Jamestown, North Dakota, pop. 14,600, sits in the middle of the state along Interstate I-94. Often referred to as the “Buffalo City”, Jamestown is noted for it’s three albino buffalo belonging to a herd managed by staff at the National Buffalo Museum, which is located on the outskirts of town.

One of the hidden “gems” of this community is the staff at the James River Correctional Center. This state run prison is “home” for 415 medium custody inmates. Read this week's full story.

READER FEEDBACK

Regarding Jamming on the inside
This is something that should have federal funding and should be done in every prison in America. These criminals should not have this type of access, and should not be able to make these phone calls.
