The Department of Correction says the Osborne Correctional Institution in Somers was locked down during the overnight hours Monday night after discovery of an unspecified issue involving safety and security at the Level 3 prison which houses nearly two-thousand inmates.

A spokesman says no violence was involved,  and the lockdown was instituted only as a precaution.  It was lifted about 12:30 Tuesday afternoon.
