Interview with JD

JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't.
JD: No, I was placed in general population in a low security POD which consisted of misdemeanor violators most commonly probation violators and others charged with petty crimes. Most inmates were friendly or were isolationist. Being an open area POD interaction was common including card games, sharing of reading materials, and watching television.

JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates?
JD: There was a fight in my POD when I was there but I managed to stay out of the way. I was the youngest inmate in the POD and stuck to myself for most of the time but I manageed to befriend a few inmates who helped teach me the procedures and which individuals to avoid.

JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change?
JD: No. Placement in general population wsa based on individual charges. Misdemeanor offenders were palced in large, open, 2 story PODs. Inmates have litle to no input on where they will be housed during their stay.
