  • After a few days of lockdown, operations at the U.S. Penitentiary in Leavenworth are back to normal, a prison spokesman said.
    The federal prison was placed on lockdown Jan. 4 following two fights in the same housing unit. Some inmates suffered minor injuries, according to USP spokesman Treavor Kroger.
    Kroger said the lockdown was fully lifted Wednesday.
    All programs, including visitation, were suspended during the lockdown.
    Kroger said the lockdown impacted only the main prison facility. A minimum security camp located on the USP grounds was not affected.
