Sheriff’s Office: 3 Corrections Officers Assaulted at Kane County Jail

Three Kane County corrections officers were assaulted Monday (Feb. 25, 2019), causing what the Kane County Sheriff’s Office is calling a “massive shakedown” from the Kane County Corrections Response Team.

According to a Sheriff’s Office Facebook post and media reports, two inmates refused to lock down following recreation time. Officer made repeated commands for the inmates to return to their cells, but they would not do so, sources said.

When officers attempted to escort the inmates, two inmates attacked two corrections officers. They were subdued, handcuffed and returned to their cells.

Three officers were treated following the incident, two of whom were taken to Delnor Hospital, according to a CBS2 report.

The case is under investigation and no charges have been filed.

The Kane County Corrections Response Team received support from the Kendall County Corrections Support Team, Kane County Sheriff Ron Hain said via Facebook.

“Special thanks to my good friend and partner, Sheriff Dwight Baird,” Hain said in the Facebook post. “Laying a hand on one of our officers is never a good idea.”
