Default SC lawmakers consider multi-million dollar move to house some prisoners

SC lawmakers consider multi-million dollar move to house some prisoners in local jails

"To alleviate the pressure on South Carolina’s understaffed state-run prisons, state lawmakers are considering whether to house more prisoners at local jails across the state.

The move would lower the inmate population in state-run facilities, where staffing and funding issues have contributed to security problems, including a deadly riot in April 2018.

But the change, which could cost local governments almost $20 million if the state does not pitch in, is expected to face strong opposition from South Carolina’s law enforcement agencies tasked with running the jails and detention centers. Under the proposal, sheriffs across the state could take on S.C. inmates in about 75% of the state’s 46 counties."
