The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) gathers intelligence about the activities of the inmate population that may threaten public safety and/or be disruptive to the security and orderly operation of the facilities. The SIU also investigates alleged inmate misconduct and provides evidence at inmate disciplinary hearings on the basis of its investigations. The Unit monitors and investigates gang activity, and tracks and apprehends escapees. SIU works closely with outside law enforcement agencies in the prosecution of inmates believed to be engaged in criminal activities.
