Facility Making Progress In Efforts Against Sexual Misconduct

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - The Topeka Correctional Facility is taking steps to prevent potential sexual abuse cases.

The facility has added 110 new cameras since January of last year and is providing additional training for staff members. The changes come after Governor Sam Brownback requested a full review of practices and procedures at the facility in the wake of reports of staff members having sex with inmates.

Corrections Secretary Ray Roberts says progress is being made and additional efforts to monitor and stop potential sexual misconduct will continue.

Roberts says zero tolerance for sexual misconduct is a top priority.
