Goose Creek Correctional Center staff discovered 19 Suboxone strips in an envelope while processing inmate mail last week. Our diligent staff noticed pages of the mail stuck together, and as they worked to separate them, found several orange squares mostly covered in white paint, approximately one inch in size, glued to the pages.
Alaska Department of Corrections‘ staff work around the clock to keep drugs and other contraband out of our facilities. Once drugs are discovered, they’re turned over to the department’s Professional Conduct Unit (PCU).
PCU builds cases and works with other law enforcement entities — like the FBI – Federal Bureau of Investigation, Alaska State Troopers (Official) and the Drug Enforcement Administration — to go after drug traffickers.
This work and collaboration is critical to building a Safer Alaska.
