DOC Statement on Pine Lodge Prison Closure

OLYMPIA – Eldon Vail, secretary of the Department of Corrections, today issued the following statement in regard to the planned closure of Pine Lodge Corrections Center for Women:

“We received a letter yesterday from the Mayor of Spokane and the Spokane county Sheriff expressing their interest in exploring options and uses, including the joint use of the Pine Lodge facility, located in Medical Lake. We will be facilitating a visit for local authorities immediately so they will have additional information about the facility to begin that conversation.”

“As a result, I have decided to delay our plans to close the facility. We need adequate time to seriously consider what might be developed to serve the needs of our local partners as well as the communities of Eastern Washington.”
