» In a Page A1 article Saturday on alleged prison smuggling, several paragraphs were misattributed to city spokeswoman Louise Kim McCoy. It was state Public Safety Director Jodie Maesaka-Hirata who said the department’s work line program is designed for inmates preparing to return to society. Inmates are taught work skills and ethics. "This is not the kind of work ethic we want to teach them where you work three hours and play three hours," Maesaka-Hirata said. When the four vehicles returned to OCCC Thursday, they were checked by corrections officers, a tactic normally done on a random basis, she said. Maesaka-Hirata also said the state considers smuggling of cigarettes into prisons a serious issue because they can be bartered, with a pack costing as much as $200 to $500.
