Lawrence Correctional Center is on full lockdown after an inmate tried to escape. He climbed over a barbed wire fence and hid behind a housing unit during yard time at about 1:00p.m. yesterday but was captured before he could make a full get away. Both current and former prison workers have expressed concern about possible escapes, claiming there isn't enough staff to manage the overcrowded prison system. A DOC spokesperson says safety is a top priority and they're investigating yesterday's incident.
