Closing Advice

Interview with Tammy, Tiffany, Sarah, Rachel and Betty

JM: What else would you want a friend or family member to know if they have a loved one going to this jail?
Tammy: just be there for them, and visits, letters and phone calls always make your time go quicker and easier.
Tiffany: Put some money on the phone so they can call home. If thier family or loved on is on drugs- jail is most often the best place for them. Jail and my charges changed my life. For the better. It is a very humbling experience. Although not a place you want to go, it is amazing how easily and more so quickly you adapt. Write your family and encourage them during thier incarceration. People dont change. Peoples perceptions change. And that in turn changes them. God Willing!
Sarah: Put money in their account. The food is nasty and the only way to survive is with commissary and sleep . 75 dollars will be okay . when you put money in the account they take off 25 for the wristband and then 3 dollars a day .
Rachel: to eat alot before they go in,be preparted to get no sleep and the girls have no respect for each other after it comes a certain hr at night i dont think its fair
Betty: i would tell them to just try to stay out of trouble or dont do anything that would end you up going there because it was not a clean or nice place to be in

JM: If somebody knows they will be serving time in this jail what is your advice to them?
Tammy: once you get out - stay out of trouble so you dont go back. and while in there, dont get attitudes towards other inmates or officers cause your the one that will suffer
Tiffany: Take that time to find and better yourself. They will soon find out whom truley loves them. Jail has a way of making you see your life more clearly. Shows you what is important- more importantly ; what isn't. Find a higher power and lean on Him. This too shall pass. And it is true that what does not kill you only makes you stronger. Stay to yourself and do your own time.
Sarah: If somebody I know was going to be serving time in the palm beach county jail im pretty sure they would not comite the crime because the jail is not that great and the food sucks.
Rachel: be on you best behavior,dont let other inmates get to you,dont listen to what othet people that to say and just sick to yourself and do your time and go home
Betty: for them to stick to theirself and just listen to the officers because the officers treat you like you are nothing when we are all human and everybody makes mistakes even if you are a police officer
