Jail Layout

Interview with JD

JM: How many different blocks were there?
JD: 3 main blocks and 1 womens block. The 3 main blocks were composed of 3 Pods each. The three Pods faced inward on a central command/ control station separated by glass.

JM: Did they have names? If so, what were they?
JD: Each POD was given an aphabetical assignment Example: A POD, B pod ect.

JM: Which types of inmates were housed in the different blocks?
JD: 2 of the POds in each block were for minor violators and had open floor plans. The other POD in each block was for felony violators and consisted of two levels with cells ( 2 people per cell)

JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks?
JD: The open layout of the minor offender PODs was nice as it allowed freedom of movement and interaction amongst inmates. On the first level was several tables, a TV( controlled by staff only), and several telephones. It was nice to have a book cart come around the POD every other day to change out reading materials. Also 1 copy of the local newspaper was given to each msidemeanor POD. Worst part was that the misdemeanor PODs were heavily overcrowded. That ment you had to sleep on a temporary platform bed in the middle of the common area until an unoccupied bed opended up.
