Department of Corrections to triple amount of pads given to female inmates

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX - Amid controversy over a bill that would provide an unlimited amount of free feminine hygiene products to female inmates, the Arizona Department of Corrections has announced that it will increase the number of pads provided.

Previously, incarcerated women received 12 sanitary napkins per month; now, they will be getting 36, regardless of need. The change is effective immediately.

The inmates will still be able to request and receive additional pads if deemed necessary. Other feminine hygiene products are still available through the inmate store, according to the announcement.

The department said it reviewed the policy in response to numerous comments received in the past week.
