Prison security tightens, lie tests given
MEXICO CITY, Mexico - Federal officials have been sweeping through Mexican prisons in efforts to stop crime behind the barred windows. Officials recently went to a prison in Maramoros, Mexico and searched every cell and prisoner for weapons and drugs. More than 650 people took part in the raid but no prohibited items were found. At a federal prison in La Palma, polygraph and psychological tests were given to 150 employees of the high-security facility. Only 43 percent of those people passed the exams and those that failed were fired. Prison officials have been on the highest alert since six employees at a Mexican prison were kidnapped and murdered by armed men at a fake roadblock near the compound. Since then, security has tightened and many restrictions have been put in place.
