Default Huron Valley to take more female inmates

Washtenaw County will become home to the largest number of female prison inmates in the state, under a budget plan proposed by Gov. Jennifer Granholm and recommended by the Michigan Department of Corrections.

Under the proposed state budget, the DOC would close the Camp Brighton minimum security prison for 395 women in Brighton Township next fall and the women would move to the Huron Valley Complex-Women's facility in Pittsfield Township. The proposed budget goes into effect Oct. 1.

Huron Valley-Women's complex will become one of the first facilities in the state to offer intensive pre-parole programs being created to prepare inmates for release and reduce the percentage of offenders who commit new crimes and return to prison.

To make room for the rest of the transfers, he said, the Technical Rules Violations Center at the complex of prisons for men and women will be eliminated. A new Intensive Re-entry Unit will house 232 women.


Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising everytime we fall.
