|Update on Staff Assault|
|By Colorado Department of Corrections|
The staff involved in last night’s assault at Sterling Correctional Facility were seriously injured but the injuries are not life threatening. The actions of those involved will not be tolerated or accepted by our department. Our Inspector General's Office will work with the local district attorney to ensure that the individuals involved be prosecuted and punished to the maximum extent allowed by law. Because the incident is under investigation no further details can be released at this time.
On November 6, 2018 four Correctional Officers were assaulted by multiple offenders in the dining hall at Sterling Correctional Facility. Staff were examined and emergency treatment was administered by on duty medical personnel. Those injured were transported to the hospital by ambulance and other correctional staff. At this time the facility will remain on lock down as the incident is under investigation. Because it is an active investigation no further details can be released at this time.
