HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania’s state corrections officers’ union wants the state prison system to stop all transfers of inmates as a preventative measure against potential spread of the new coronavirus from one institution to another.

Larry Blackwell, the president of the 11,000-member corrections officers’ union, said Tuesday that moving inmates between prisons risks unnecessarily spreading the virus to an institution, where it will be very difficult to stop it from spreading to other inmates and employees.

“The governor has called for all non-essential movement to halt, and this isn’t essential,” Blackwell said. “And the governor has the authority to shut down the movement of these prisoners. The counties, the state, let’s just freeze everything until we figure out what’s going on.”

    I think this is a great decision from the officers. And the government should look at their advice. Here you need to visit https://www.rushmypapers.me/ to complete your quality task easily. Because as we all know that the spread of coronavirus is very fast. And if we transfer the prisoners from one place to another. It's dangerous for them.

    This is interesting! The officers should think of the best idea to prevent inmate transfer and the state should give voice for the officers.

    I agree with this. Inmate transfers is not a necessary action to take in this pandemic. Prevention is better than cure and by postponing the transfer, the transmission of the virus can be avoided. Sydney criminal lawyers
