By  | 

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - (01/05/19)- The Michigan Department of Corrections is failing to adequately document how it selects which prisons get selected for closure, according to a recent audit report.

The Lansing State Journal details that auditors determined in a Dec. 28 report the department failed to show how collecting information on the facilities' age, condition, economic impact and operational costs plays a role in a prison getting shut down.

MDOC closed three prisons from 2016-2018.
