Town of Brocton, NY (WKBW)
In a release issued this morning--
Inmate Rashaun Austin, 16, is in State Police custody. Apprehension took place at approximately 8:30 a.m.

Daryl Parker, 20, was caught at 10:30a by State Police not far from the Lakeview facility.

--A spokesperson for the NYS Department of Correctional Services tells us that two men were working on the grounds outside of the perimeter when they walked away from the Lakeview Incarceration Facility near the Town of Brocton in Chautauqua County. Police searched by air and ground for the inmates. The Lakeview facility is in lockdown.

Parker was convicted of attempted burglary in the third degree. He was sentenced to 1 1/2 years to 3 years in a military boot camp style program.

16 year old Rashaun Austin was also convicted of Burglary and sentenced to one and one third years to four years in prison and is now in State Police custody. EWN has a crew on location in the area of the capture ans will have more as it becomes available.

There are presently 442 inmates at the Lakeview Incarceration Facility.

Here is a breakdown of the prison (as of 2007) from the Correctional Association of NYS.

The Correctional Association (CA) visited Lakeview Correctional Facility, in Brocton, NY, on October 23 and 24, 2007. Lakeview is a prison with minimum, medium and maximum security areas. At the time of our visit, the facility had a population of approximately 1,035 male
inmates and 87 female inmates housed in three separate areas:

Lakeview Shock Incarceration (men and women), Lakeview Annex and Lakeview S-Block. These areas are distinct in operations, programs, goals and inmate population. At the time of our visit, 420 men and 76 women were in Lakeview’s Shock Incarceration program, a “boot-camp” style intensive incarceration program that offers eligible inmates to reduce their sentence to six months.

According the DOCS’ 2007 Nineteenth Annual Shock Legislative Report, the Shock program results in its graduates serving on average more than 11 months less time in Department custody than if they were not in the program, resulting in a significant savings for the state. The facility has a capacity to house 540 men and 109 women. Lakeview also held 82 inmates in its 160-bed reception dorms reserved for inmates waiting to be screened for Shock eligibility; in addition, there were 108 inmates who had been screened and were waiting to begin the Shock program, filling to capacity the areas designated for “Shock Ready” inmates.

Lakeview’s Annex, which holds male inmates who declined admission to Shock or who were screened but not admitted to the program, can house 250 men. At the time of our visit approximately 100 men were temporarily placed in the Annex awaiting transfer to another facility. Lakeview’s S-Block, a 200-bed disciplinary confinement unit for male inmates sent to Lakeview primarily from other facilities for disciplinary reasons with a 32-cell section of Lakeview disciplinary inmates, held 188 inmates.

In addition to operating academic, vocational, Alcohol and Substance Abuse Treatment, and other treatment programs, the facility screens all inmates for eligibility for the four state prison Shock programs – Lakeview, Monterey, Moriah and Summit – and trains all Shock
Incarceration facility personnel for the state's Shock programs.
