Audit Results On U.P. State Prison

A performance audit has disclosed some issues in operations at the state prison in Marquette.

The audit found prison workers were failing to inspect or inventory weapons in its Emergency Response Team arsenal, complete or distribute all gate manifests that catalog what goes in and out of the prison and ensure all staff walked through a metal detector or were subjected to a hand-held screening device before entering the Level V facility.

Another finding in the audit was that the Department of Corrections did not ensure that Aramark, its food service vendor, properly completed and retained the required daily and weekly food service sanitation inspection reports.

The audit reviewed prison operations from October 1, 2012, through September 30, 2014, and concluded that the prison generally complied with policies related to safety and security.
