Today, Gov. Kim Reynolds released the following statement on the completed DOJ Investigation into Glenwood Resource Center:
“What happened at the Glenwood Resource Center was unconscionable and unacceptable. Under Director Garcia’s leadership at DHS, we’ve fully cooperated with the investigation and I commend her for immediately digging in to assess the situation. I am committed to bringing all the tools and state resources needed to address the challenges at the facility. The families and loved ones remain in my thoughts as this likely brings up very difficult and strong emotions.”
Upon learning of the DOJ Investigation, Gov. Reynolds instructed DHS Director Kelly Garcia to cooperate and assist with any investigation. DHS went on to conduct a review and fact-finding effort to identify issues and begin making changes.
