After March Riot Maui Jail Still Only Half Staffed

WAILUKU, MAUI (Ben Caxton) — Even after a March riot that caused more than $5 million in damages at a Maui jail, the state two months later is still operating the facility with less than half its required number of guards and staff. According to AP, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported Sunday that the Hawaii Department of Public Safety says as few as 83 of 170 guards are regularly reporting to work at the Maui Community Correctional Center in Wailuku. Corrections officers told the newspaper that some guards are working 60 to 80 hours per week to compensate.
