SC Dept. of Corrections work to stop the flow of contraband into prisons

"The South Carolina Department of Corrections has nearly nineteen thousand prisoners at their correctional institutions across the state.

State Rep. Todd Rutherford says there simply aren't enough officers to keep contraband items like cellphones and drugs from getting to inmates

“We’ve got to focus on the root problem, too many inmates too few correctional officers," says Rutherford.

Corrections Director Bryan Stirling says a major part of the problem is not just hiring officers but keeping them and making sure they have the right makeup for the job."
