Interview with Ellen

JM: How many different blocks were there?
Ellen: I know they had many floors for high risk inmates, for the ones on psych medication, and general population which I was in.

JM: Did they have names? If so, what were they?
Ellen: They are numbered I was in pod 2500 1st floor.

JM: Which types of inmates were housed in the different blocks?
Ellen: attempted murder and violent crimes are on their own floor, then we have the ones on psych medication or mental stability problems, The hole where you went when you got into a fight or something like that, general population, and the working dorm.

JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks?
Ellen: The nicest depended on the deputy working. They would play music, or let us out for a long period of time or more TV access. The worst was being on lock down all day and just be let out for a quick shower and back in. I only been placed in one other place and its the same. It depends on the shift.
