    AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR VISITORS

    To prevent the potential for COVID-19 (coronavirus) exposure, the Illinois Department of Corrections, after consultation with the Illinois Department of Public Health, is temporarily suspending all visits effective March 14 until further notice. We recognize the importance of visitation as an essential component of rehabilitation, family connection and quality of life for those in our care. Our top priority is the health and safety of those who live and work in our facilities, and we are hopeful this policy change will be short-lived.

    Illinois Inmates Make Posters for Black Lives Matter March on Washington.

    Chief of Staff for the Illinois Department of Corrections, Camile Lindsay, said the Department wanted to give offenders across the state an opportunity to get involved with the Black Lives Matter movement without actually having to be present. "We felt they would likely have very strong opinions about that," Lindsay said. "A lot of the protests had to do with interactions with law enforcement, and everybody in our custody has had interactions with law enforcement. One way we thought they could participate was to use some of their artistic skills to put together posters that expressed their support of the protests." Those posters will be taken all the way to Washington, D.C. to be used at the Black Lives Matter March.
