(KMOV) – The Illinois Department of Corrections says it wants to increase the number of female prison guards in the state.

A corrections spokeswoman says female guards are critical at both male and female prisons.

Currently Illinois has three all-women prisons.

This announcement of recruiting efforts comes after a report by the John Howard Association which found several recorded instances of inappropriate behavior by male guards at a women’s prison in Dwight, Illinois.
