Wis. DOC sends officials to Armenia
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A Wisconsin Department of Corrections team is spending two weeks in Armenia to help improve that country's prison system.
The five-person delegation will participate in training, discussions and field observations, including visits to institutions and a new institution under construction in the Armavir province. The group hopes to help develop activation plans and security policies for the new facility.
The delegation departed on Sept. 27. The visit will run through Oct. 12.
DOC hosted Armenian correctional officials in May and August. Those officials visited Wisconsin prisons and attended a number of training sessions.
