More than a dozen correction officers are expected to face charges following a sweep of a jail on Rikers Island.

The Department of Investigation teamed up with the Department of Correction to carry out an unprecedented search of inmates and correction officers.

Investigators were looking for contraband and weapons.

The search comes after a DOI investigation revealed violence and illegal activity were plaguing facilities on the island.

The DOI did not specify the charges the officers will likely face.
