St. Joseph and Cameron Correctional Facilities to Absorb Kansas City Offenders & Staff

Two Northwest Missouri corrections facilities are absorbing offenders and staff after the closing of multiple prison facilities in the state.

Reports say the Kansas City Re-entry Center offenders and staff are now part of the Western Reception, Diagnostic, and Correctional Center in Saint Joseph and the Western Missouri Correctional Center in Cameron.

The Department of Corrections says 75 inmates are part of the transfer.

The Cremer Therapeutic Community Center in Fulton is also closing.
