Interview with Randy

JM: How many different blocks were there?
Randy: Where I was at, there were 12 different "units", as we called them.

JM: Did they have names? If so, what were they?
Randy: Challenge, Isis, Yemaya, Freedom, Kachina, Crossroads, Voyager, Nova, Journey, Hope, Triumph, and Enterprise.

JM: Which types of inmates were housed in the different blocks?
Randy: Challenge was for new intakes, Isis and Yemaya were for females, Crossroads was for violent offenders, Voyager was for parole violators, Freedom and Hope were for substance abusers, Nova and Journey were for sex offenders, and Triumph was for the mentally unstable.

JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks?
Randy: The nicest part was that they were all, for the most part, well maintained buildings. They were painted well and had some entertainment within such as televisions and radios. The worst part would have to be the inmates themselves. Most of them were unforgiving, ruthless people who did not care much about being there, and caused trouble.
