No Cameras Located Where Prisoners Escaped

Virgilio Murillo

The twenty-eight prisoners escaped through the rear of the prison compound near the Administration Segregation building.  There are no cameras in that area and so there are no images of the actual jailbreak. This morning, Murillo explained the absence of cameras in the rear area of the prison compound.

 

Virgilio Murillo, C.E.O., Kolbe Foundation

“Everything cost money. We had put up proposals to CARSI some years ago where we were trying to ask them to give us cameras because we see the need for cameras in this areas especially some of the high risk building but it never came through. And cameras aren’t cheap. We have roughly six or eight right now and that in itself cause over fourteen thousand dollars to run so  you could just imagine what putting cameras in the entire prison would rack up, what kind of bill it would rack.”
