Guam - Newly-elected attorney general Elizabeth Barrett-Anderson and other stakeholders will be paying a visit to the island's prison Friday morning.

In a release from the AG's Office, the visit will be focused on addressing outstanding issues and timelines set in recent order from the District Court so the prison can provide adequate medical, dental, and mental health care for inmates and detainees.

The working group includes members from the Department of Administration, Guam Behavioral Health and Wellness Center, Guam Fire Department, DOC, the Guam Legislature, Public Health, and the independent monitor.

The meeting gets way at 9am at the Mangilao Detention Facility.
