NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A blistering new report raises troubling questions about safety hazards in and around city jails and prisons. The report shows dozens of violations that include lack of fire exits and smoke alarms and major sprinkler problems. And the plans to fix all this could extend an eye-popping 11 years.

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A blistering new report raises troubling questions about safety hazards in and around city jails and prisons.

The report shows dozens of violations that include lack of fire exits and smoke alarms and major sprinkler problems.

And the plans to fix all this could extend an eye-popping 11 years.

CBS2’s Marcia Kramer is investigating why the Department of Correction hasn’t done anything about it.

“It’s simply dangerous. We should not have to wait for a horrible tragedy to happen before the city does what it’s supposed to do,” Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley, D-Queens, told Kramer.

Crowley, chair of the committee that oversees the city’s Department of Correction, was furious after CBS2 showed her a report prepared for the agency’s federal monitor.
