State lawmakers calling for a bipartisan review of Tennessee’s corrections system following a spasm of violence, an escape and complaints from prison guards of being overworked. The Department is suffering from a manpower shortage after it dropped a traditional 40 hour work week for employees to save on overtime pay. In separate incidents Friday, 11 inmates at 2 west state prisons were stabbed during cell fights. A minimum security inmate escaped from the Nortwest Correctional Complex and was recaptured later in the day. Some guards at the Bledsoe County Corrections Complex outside Pikeville say they have wrecked cars on the way home from 16 straight hours on duty. Republican House Speaker Beth Harwell says the incidents are “concerning”. Democrat Minority Leader Craig Fitzhugh says problems will grow unless changes are made in how Corrections Officers are paid and scheduled.
