MADISON, WI - After the events Wednesday, there ought to be a complete - not partial - lockdown of inmates at the tense Green Bay Correction Institution, where 12 officers were injured during a disturbance, Gary Lonzo, President of officers' Local Union 32, said today.Lonzo Criticized the state Department of Corrections for only ordering a partial lockdown after Wednesday's incident.Under that procedure, selected work crews and feeding in the kitchen continue.
"We need a full lockdown that will confine all inmates to their cells, along with looking at policy changes which will make the institution a safer place for everyone," said Lonzo, a sergeant at the institution, also President of AFSCME Council 24 - Wisconsin State Employees Union."This is a dangerous situation.There needs to be a compete shakedown of the cells for weapons and contraband, which has not happened in a couple of years."
"We had a dozen officers hurt Wednesday," Lonzo said, "nine of them requiring hospital treatment.
"The officers did an excellent job in controlling the situation," Lonzo said."But what's more important here - spending a little money for a complete lockdown or jeopardizing the safety of the staff?"
Lonzo noted the dangerously overcrowded facility has some 945 inmates, about 440 over capacity, and that it is understaffed."We are 22 officers short," he said."Tensions are high," Lonzo said.

Gary Lonzo, Council 24 field representative in Northeast Wisconsin, said the protest was also about Gard's portrayal of state workers to the media.
Lonzo represents about 3,000 state employees, including maintenance, security and food service workers at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, local representatives of state departments and their clerical staffs, game wardens, and employees at the Green Bay Correctional Institution, among others.
"It was a protest about John Gard and the Senate and Legislature bashing state employees," Lonzo said.
Lonzo said another reason he was unhappy is that the union is nearing the end of contract negotiations with the state Department of Employee Relations.Union workers have been without a contract since July 1, 2001.
"We're not making any noise about the bargaining process, we're doing what we and the department are supposed to do," Lonzo said."We're fairly close, but unfortunately other people are now sticking their noses in."
He also said contrary to popular belief, many state employees do pay monthly premiums for health coverage.
"There's different levels of HMOs, different plans," Lonzo said."The best plan, the Prevea plan, is now $160 a month for families.
"If you take the least expensive plan, yeah, it's free.But then you're changing doctors every year, it's not as comprehensive.We could pay for health insurance, but it's something we should be bargaining."
Beil and Lonzo both said they felt some variation of the idea floated by the Wisconsin Counties Association, which would reduce the state sales tax to 3.5 percent while removing many exemptions, deserves more investigation by the state as a way to repair the budget.
"There are ways to save money," Lonzo said."But we all know that after the election, whoever wins, Republican or Democrat, is going to raise taxes.There's no other way to do it, but the exemptions will affect everyone."
