The Corrections Information Council (CIC) had a meeting with Deputy Director Thomas R. Kane and other representatives of the Bureau of Prisons (BOP) via teleconference on Wednesday, May 27, 2020. The goal of the meeting was to address effective communication of information between the two entities, with special emphasis on data related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Representatives from MORCA, OVSJG, and the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Public Safety and Justice also participated. The CIC inquired about home confinement and compassionate release efforts, as well as the total amount of DC code offenders who have tested positive for COVID-19, recovered from COVID-19, and all deaths of DC code offenders (regardless of whether or not related to COVID-19).
