|Alaska corrections chief makes prison policy changes|
JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Alaska's corrections chief says she has ended several policies and practices that raised public safety issues, including one that allowed inmates to be checked out on so-called day passes.
Nancy Dahlstrom says she could not find logs or documentation showing how many inmates were checked out under the program. Dahlstrom also says she ended a program that allowed some volunteers "almost unrestricted" prison access.
Language for the old policies no longer appeared on the Department of Corrections website.
