Inmates are able to return to individual cells, some of which are fully or partially working.

Vendors have been called in this week to assess the damage and provide cost estimates to restore the common areas.

MCCC is continuing to staff a perimeter as a precaution.

Since DPS removed 21 inmates, who allegedly aggressively participated in the March 11 disturbance, the mood and atmosphere has calmed down, a DPS news release said.

The disturbance remains under investigation.

The Public Safety Department points to extreme overcrowding conditions as the motive for the disturbance and the subsequent unrest.
