DOC makes $2.5M in housing unit improvements

Posted: May 16, 2018 1:43 PM Updated:

The corrections department cut the ribbon on $2.5 million in improvements to various housing units. The prison has been undergoing multiple renovations that are required by a federal consent decree, to bring the facility up to national standards.

Director Tony Lamorena says the recent work represents the first major upgrades in years, telling KUAM News, "We've completed the rehabilitation of two posts, 17 and 7. And Post 6 which is our maximum security unit is currently under construction. And we've also changed the skins on the domes since they were first built more than twenty years ago. So this is a huge day for the Department of Corrections."

Lamorena says most of the work was paid for by federal funding.
