Description

An investigation by California Lawyer revealed that the California Correctional Peace Officers Association, the state's prison guard union, uses campaign money and intimidation "to win not only significant contract benefits but also to block or co-opt investigations of officer corruption in its ranks and to influence crime legislation. The story pulled together election campaign funding records and law enforcement interviews to show how money and pressure have been used to block investigations of staff misconduct while successfully promoting higher wages, longer prison terms, and more prison construction."
