Poplar Hill Pre-Release Unit under investigation

The Poplar Hill Pre-Release Unit in Quantico, Md. is under internal investigation by the Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services for supplies they purchased earlier this year.

According to Gerard Shields, a media specialist for the department, investigators are looking to see if procurement policies were followed in ordering supplies.

Because of personnel policies, Shields said he could not say how many people are under investigation or provide any additional information.

The Poplar Hill Pre-Release unit houses inmates who are finishing their rehabilitation and are preparing to re-enter society.
