Four Officers Injured Breaking Up Assault at Washington State Penitentiary

Last week an assault in a different unit of the West Complex resulted in a lockdown of all four units. The other three units returned to normal operations Saturday but are now on lockdown again as staff and local law enforcement conduct investigations.
Washington State Penitentiary houses more than 2,000 offenders in minimum-, medium-, close- and maximum-custody units. It and Clallam Bay Corrections Center are the state’s two highest-security prisons.
