The lockdown of MDOC prisons has been partially lifted.

Earlier this week, all prisons within the Mississippi Department of Corrections system were placed on lockdown as the department investigated what they were calling a “statewide incident.”

As part of the lockdown, “visitation, commissary, and outside recreation at all state-run and privately managed institutions in the Mississippi Department of Corrections system and regional jails, except for two areas, were canceled until further notice.”

A new post from the MDOC has stated that movement is no longer restricted for state inmates at 15 regional facilities, however, there are no updates on what the cause of the lockdown was.

The lockdown does remain in effect for these state-run prisons:

  • Central Mississippi Correctional Facility
  • Mississippi State Penitentiary at Parchman
  • South Mississippi Correctional Institution
  • East Mississippi Correctional Facility
  • Wilkinson County Correctional Facility
  • Marshall County Correctional Facility

Female inmates at CMCF and Washington County Regional Correctional Facility were exempt from the lockdown.
