Default Anybody know what the situation is with Menard?

The cells at the pit in Menard CC were scrutinized by the court a lot of the inmates were moved out to other facilities in 2018. But now I hear that Menard is returning those inmates back to the pit. Does anyone know if this is true and, if so, are they still housing 2 inmates in the really small cells? Has IDOC made any improvements at all to any of the Menard cells?

I heard this week that they’re actually moving inmates out of MSU to redo the unit. There’s been a lot of shuffling around of offenders since the guest of the year and there are rumors that some of the joints are being reclassify from med to max, max - super max (menard) and soon. Unfortunately IDOC doesn’t have any consistency or real credibility when it comes to issues so no one ever knows what’s going on

Thanks for the information. Menard Central is in such bad shape it's a wonder the State is able to even keep it open. I also don't see the security issue with IDOC saying what it intends to do with specific facilities.
