Prisons in the Mississippi Department of Corrections system are under lockdown until further notice pending investigation of a statewide incident.

Visitation, commissary, and outside recreation at all state-run and privately managed institutions in the MDOC system and regional jails, except for two areas, are canceled until further notice.

The female population at Central Mississippi Correctional Facility (CMCF) and Washington County Regional Correctional Facility are not affected by the restricted movement.

Lockdowns are necessary for the safety and security of staff and inmates. Preventing harm to staff and inmates outweighs the temporary loss of privileges for individual inmates.
