ABC 15 Reports on ADCRR Lewis Complex Staff Whistle-Blower Allegations of Continued Retaliation
July 28, 2020
In this story, ABC 15 investigative reporter Dave Biscobing details the allegations of ADCRR Lieutenant Mark Hasz and Assistant Deputy Warden Shawn Holland wherein they “allege that they have been subjected to multiple ongoing internal investigations since they raised separate concerns about conditions inside the state’s Lewis prison complex.”
Whistle blower retaliation in the ADCRR is a serious issue indicative of a culture of corruption and obfuscation of serious issues inside the department. There have been many reports by staff that this type of retaliation is expected in the department. The chilling effect this conduct has upon staff to raise issues of concern about the facilities and operations inside the ADCRR is a clear threat to public safety and the secure operations inside the prisons.
