Cameron Anniversary

It's the 20th anniversary of the Western Missouri Correctional Center opening in the city.

Employees at the state prison have been holding chili cook-offs and other events all this week to mark the occasion.

At a ceremony this morning the corrections center held a recognition of the 25 staff that have been with the facility all 20 years of its existence.

A gift from the prison to the City of Cameron is also being presented.

The Western Missouri Correctional Center today holds more than 1,700 male inmates, with a maximum capacity of just under 2,000.
